THE RISE AND FALL OF LITTLE VOICE TOUR

new tour of the rise and fall of little voiceProducers Katy Lipson and Glass Half Full Productions have just announced the UK tour of a brand-new production of Jim Cartwright’s The Rise And Fall of Little Voice opening in Southampton on 23rd March 2022.

It will be directed by Bronagh Lagan (Cruise, West End) and star two-time Drama Desk nominee   Christina Bianco, whose extraordinary diva videos have been viewed over 25million times on YouTube to great international acclaim, will play LV.  Shobna Gulati, whose work includes Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (West End/film), Cinderella (Lyric Hammersmith), Coronation Street and Dinner Ladies will play Mari Hoff.  While Ian Kelsey, much loved for his many leading roles in the West End and on TV including Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Doctors and Casualty will play Ray Say.  Joining them are Akshay Gulati (The Family Way) as Billy, Anna Hale (London Road) as understudy LV and Sadie, William Ilkley (War Horse) as Mr Boo with Fiona Mulvaney (The Ferryman) as Sadie and James Robert Moore (All That) in the role of Phone Man. Moore is also resident director on the production. 

From Judy Garland to Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe to Billie Holliday, Christina Bianco will vividly bring to life performances from the great chanteuses in Cartwright’s tender and life-affirming play.  The Rise and Fall of Little Voice won both the Oliver award and Evening Standard award for Best Comedy when it premiered at the National Theatre in 1992 in a production directed by Sam Mendes which transferred to the Aldwych, starring Jane Horrocks and Alison Steadman. Horrocks later reprised the role of LV in a film adaptation also starring Brenda Blethyn, Michael Caine, Ewan McGregor and Jim Broadbent.

Meet Little Voice and Mari Hoff. A mother and daughter central to the heart of this Northern fairytale, but as far apart in character as can be. Left to her own devices, Little Voice starts to embody the famous divas she plays on repeat, from Judy Garland to Shirley Bassey, and becomes an overnight sensation.

With humour, heart and countless powerhouse ballads all performed live on stage, Cartwright’s timeless and iconic tale explores the highs and the lows of small-town dreams, family rivalry and finding your voice in a noisy world.

The show will be directed by Bronagh Lagan with sound by Andrew Johnson and musical direction by Eamonn O’Dwyer
