I Can’t Sing! The X Factor Musical
Featuring a host of characters who may seem oddly familiar, this brand new production looks like it could be something for both X Factor lovers and haters.
Olivier Award-winner Nigel Harman will play X Factor supremo Simon, with Cynthia Erivo and Alan Morrissey as lovestruck contestants Chenice and Max. Joining Nigel on the judging panel will be Ashley Knight as the ever-positive boyband manager Louis and Victoria Elliot as pop queen Jordy. Simon Bailey will play the overly affectionate X Factor host Liam O’Deary, with Billy Carter as Executive Producer and Simon’s right hand man, Gerard Smalls. Simon Lipkin plays Chenice’s faithful canine sidekick Barlow and Joe Speare is her iron-lung bound Grandad.
Written by BAFTA award-winning comedian Harry Hill and with music and lyrics by Steve Brown (Spend, Spend, Spend; Spitting Image; TV Burp), I Can’t Sing! is co-produced by the patron saint of fame himself, Simon Cowell.
Harry Hill said “I worked with a lot of our cast in the workshops for I Can’t Sing! and we have some brilliant new faces too. I’m thrilled with the acting company we have on board – and it’s a coup to have Nigel Harman as Simon. He was so funny in Shrek the Musical – not so much in Downton. With the wig and teeth he looks more like Simon, than Simon.”
Opening at the London Palladium on Wednesday 26 March 2014, with previews from Thursday 27 February 2014
