All or Nothing - The Musical September 02 2016

All or Nothing the Musical

Have you been to see “All or Nothing” yet? It's going on tour and we can’t wait until it comes to Manchester on 18th October.   For those of you reading this, who are yet to see or discover this show, it’s the new sell-out sensation musical and it's just headed off on the 2nd leg of a major nationwide tour, visiting 15 theatres, in a run that continues until Saturday 12th November. 

The musical is written by the award-winning actress Carol Harrison and directed by BAFTA winner Tony McHale. Carol also stars in the show as ‘Kay Marriott’ and Chris Simmons as ‘Steve Marriott’. “All or Nothing” tells the electrifying yet bittersweet tale of Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott; four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and above all talent. They became The Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to fantastic success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and ultimately tragedy.

 

“All or Nothing” celebrates the unique sound of the iconic Mod band. The musical is packed full of all the timeless hits, including the brilliant Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice, Itchycoo Park and of course All or Nothing.

The Small Faces journey in the music business is as vivid and colourful as their sound. And theirs is a legacy which lives on – raw and soulful music which inspired a whole new generation of stars including Paul Weller and The Jam, Oasis, Blur, The Verve, Ocean Colour Scene, and The Arctic Monkeys. Not to mention millions of fans.


In 1964, a new phenomenon exploded on to the dingy British streets. It was the essence of all that was cool. It was Mod. Mods stuck two fingers up at the class-ridden society and its dull redundant culture. They were working-class free spirits who rode sexy streamlined Italian Vespas or Lambrettas.

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer P.P. Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach.

 

The show, which extended its London run at The Vaults Theatre due to phenomenal public demand, opened to critical acclaim and nightly standing ovations on 31 March this year.

Here is what the press said:

The Daily Star Sunday, “Funny fiery and brave… you’ll have a rocking night out”,

The Stage, “The group capture that unmistakable mix of anger and arrogance that defined the Mod sound.”

West End Wilma, “If you’re looking for a fun night out and some good old British Pop culture- get your tickets!”

UDiscoverMusic.com, “Exuberant, celebratory and enormous fun”

MusicalTheatreReview.com, “It stands proud above the others (despite the band’s diminutive stature)”
