New musical Why Am I So Single? from Six creators to have London workshop

A new musical from the creators of Six is to be workshopped in September.

Toby Marlow & Lucy Moss’s new musical Why Am I So Single? will run at the Lilian Baylis Studio Theatre at Sadlers Wells from Wednesday 6 – 10 September 2023.

Why Am I So Single? is a new musical about two perpetually single best friends who can’t figure out why they are so single, and who (on a completely unrelated note) are deciding what to write their next musical about.

Making up the cast of the ticketed workshop production are Christina Bennington, Jemima Brown, Josh Butler, Joe Foster, DeAngelo Jones, Tilly LaBelle Yengo, Owen McHugh, Millie O’Connell, Caitlin Redpath, Noah Thomas, Rhys Wilkinson and Charlotte Wilmott.

Lucy Moss will direct the workshop with choreography by Ellen Kane, orchestrations, vocal arrangements and musical supervision by Joe Beighton, sound design by Paul Gatehouse and casting by Will Burton. Sara Aniqah Malik is the associate director, Michael Naylor is the associate choreographer, Charlie Smith is the associate sound designer and Yutong Zhang is the musical director.

The presentation will allow audiences a rare chance to be part of a musical’s development process. The authors Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss have teamed up with producers Kenny Wax, George Stiles and Ameena Hamid.
