A new series of musicals reimagined as concerts will take place later this year, starting with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying performed at the Royal Festival Hall.

The concert will feature the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mike Dixon, alongside an ensemble of yet to be announced performers.

Co-produced by Elliot Davis and concert promoters Senbla, the show will play for one night at the Royal Festival Hall on May 19.

Senbla managing director Ollie Rosenblatt said: “Bringing this show to the London concert stage is a great privilege. To start work on a production that has stamped itself firmly as one of the great shows in the history of musical theatre is hugely exciting, and this being one of many more musicals in concerts we will be producing we hope this will be a new form of entertainment for the public to get their teeth into”.

Davis added that the concert series “will see us honing in on the timeless classics of musical theatre and bringing them to concert in London with the best orchestras, casts and creative teams we can assemble”.

Further shows in the series have not yet been announced.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – which was revived on Broadway in 2011 in a production starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette – features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert.
