Beyond The Gate - An Original Musical Revue

Price: $17.95


Product Description
Beyond The Gate’ was conceived by Mercury Musical Developments and The Gate Theatre. In early 2011 a workshop revue was presented at The Gate to showcase the songwriting skills of some the best writers in Britain - from the established (including Don Black, Frank Lazarus, Richard Stilgoe) to the rising talent (including Craig Adams, Dougal Irvine, Tim Sutton). The revue was based around Ancient Greece (to complement The Gate's forthcoming production of ‘Electra’) and MMD members submitted a broad range of material; including contemporary songs about what it means to be a hero, odes to Helen, both comic and yearning, cries from embittered soldiers, and songs about mythical adventurers and Kings such as Paris, Achilles and Menaleus.
