Steve is working on the music for Ken Hill's play The Invisible Man, based on the novel by H G Wells, which opens to previews at the Menier Chocolate Factory on 13th November. The show is being directed by Ian Talbot - who used to be the artistic director of the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park where he produced over 75 productions. Steve worked on many of these Open Air productions as the musical orchestrator. The cast includes Olivier award winner Maria Friedman, John Gordon Sinclair, Natalie Casey (star of TV's Two Pints of Larger and a Packet of Crisps as Donna) and Gary Wilmot.
The show will include comedy music hall with magic and illusions by Paul Kieve. Kieve's previous stage credits include The Lord of the Rings, The Witches of Eastwick and Theatre of Blood.
The show received its premier at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 1991.
It sounds amazingly fun - I can't wait to see it!
