Continuing his ongoing commitment to new British musical theatre writing, The Confession Room is released with a concept recording starring West End stalwarts; Anna-Jane Casey (Billy Elliot, Spamalot, Chicago), Dean Chisnall (Shrek, Love Never Dies, Never Forget), Alex Gaumond (Top Hat, We Will Rock You, Legally Blonde), and Ross Hunter (Rock of Ages, Legally Blonde, We Will Rock You), with Matthew Rowland (Taboo, Darling of the Day), Devon Johnson (Taboo, Spring Awakening), Joshua Lovell (Soho Cinders, Joseph), Rebecca-Jayne Davies (Jersey Boys, West Side Story) plus Natalie Bush, Steven Bush, Ben Fenner and Stephanie Clift.
The Confessional Room is the debut musical from Dan Looney (book by Patrick Wilde, additional Lyrics by Reece Looney and Sam Champness) who was a finalist in the 2013 Stiles and Drewe Song Prize. He has previously written music for ‘Judy, The Righteous’ (Trafalgar Studios &King’s Head Theatre), and is the current composer on ‘Oil &Trouble’ a new dance piece produced by TREMers.
The Confession Room is a place where people come to “spill their most embarrassing confessions and stories; a way of getting it off of their chest in front of a group of strangers rather than the humiliation they may face in telling their friends. We see confessions of all types: from hysterical stories to unbelievable tales, from sexual fantasies to touching moments of grief; the show is a message of how not to bottle up your feelings. But can the counsellor Caroline get over her own personal problems? And can she cope with new member Oliver whose opinions begin to divide the group – but won’t reveal why he is in the room himself?”
The Confession Room boasts an ensemble of thirty past and present students from Arts Educational School – one of the countries leading Musical Theatre drama schools and is performed by a ten-piece band led by Musical Supervisor Timothy Evans and Orchestrator &band Musical Director Florian Cooper.
The ‘Limited Edition’ concept recording boasts a 12page colour booklet and a bonus track exclusive to the physical copy (and not available when purchased as a download)
