Music by Charles Miller
Book and Lyrics by Glenn Chandler
Directed by Fenton Gray
Musical Director/Conductor: Aaron Clingham
It is getting more difficult to find new musicals that boast tuneful scores for proper singing and not belting and screaming with humorous and witty dialogues and interesting stories as well as characters. This new Musical more than doubly delivers all of the above. It is a refreshing breath air, ironically one that looks back to the hay days of the best of the English Musicals. JAY is proud and pleased to have recorded the Original London Cast album and preserved it for posterity and the audiences of the future.
For two centuries, the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens drew enormous crowds for its Circus Acts, Balloon Rides, Orchestral Concerts and Spectacular Fireworks. For those in the know, however, the darker paths, wooded corners and intimate arbours were used for more illegal and intimate entertainments. But now it is 1850 and the gardens are in their dying days. Yet still the faithful come….
Tom, a handsome young gardener is torn between the hopelessly romantic shipping Clark, Ralph and a sexually voracious aristocratic couple, Lord and Lady Lovelock.
With the gardens closing and his livelihood under threat, will Tom choose a bohemian life with Ralph: employment with the unorthodox Lord and Lady Lovelock: or answer the drumbeat of a looming overseas war?
