Following the success of their Gatsby A Musical, filmed and streamed at Cadogan Hall, Ruby in the Dust now present
Dorian A Rock Musical
This exciting new production gives Oscar Wilde’s classic an epic, modern twist with a newly composed score that sears through the action, propelled by influences from Bowie to Brecht.
A rock star, trapped in eternal adolescence, wants to change the course of his life and discover love.
But, can you find love if you’ve sold your soul to the Devil?
Whilst sitting for the eccentric society painter, Basil Hallward, Dorian is discovered by
the influential Lord Henry and is soon under the spell of this dangerous, charismatic music impresario.
Dorian, the secret child of love and death, is suddenly thrust into a confusing world
where love dare not speak its name.
With rising star Bart Lambert (Offie Award Winner 2020: Male Performance in a Musical - Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story) as the titular charcater, the cast comprises John Addison (The Life, Southwark Playhouse; A Little Night Music, Garrick Theatre), Fia Houston-Hamilton (Mamma Mia!, UK Tour; Wolf of Wall Street, Immersive London), Robert Grose (Kinky Boots, Adelphi Theatre; EastEnders, BBC), Lewis Rae (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Regents Park Open Air Theatre; Mame, Hope Mill Theatre), Johanna Stanton (The Rocky Horror Show, No. 1 UK Tour; The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Apollo Theatre), Sophie Jugé (Coppelia, Birmingham Royal Ballet; Good Omens, BBC) and Tristan Pegg (The Merry Wives of Windsor, RSC; The Shape of the Impossible, National Theatre).
Although The Picture of Dorian Gray was written over one hundred and twenty years ago, its themes of vanity, mortality, and corruption still resonate.
The show began life as a reading at Cafe Royal, in the very room where
Oscar Wilde used to stage his own readings.
Its run at the
Other Palace was cancelled just two days before opening night as the pandemic forced the first lockdown in March 2020. The fully staged show is due to open again at the Other Palace later in the year.
Now, filmed at a secret location in the heart of the West End, it will be brought to audiences online.
