'We have become known for our innovative approach to musicals, and the 2020 season concludes with Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel (31 July – 19 September), reuniting director Timothy Sheader with Superstar choreographer Drew McOnie. This classic score includes ‘If I Loved You’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.'
Delighted by this news, I usually only attend an afternoon performance there (£25 senior matinee deal) but Carousel will be a must see at least once in the evening too as it's my second favourite musical of them all. Travelled all the way to Redditch from Kent to see an amateur production last year. The Cadogan Hall concert version was awesome.
I hope they don't strip it down too much though, the reference to "innovative approach" suggests it won't be a traditional format like they did for Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.

I always thought this would be a good show for the Open Air theatre, however I feel like I was the only one who left JCS at the Barbican a bit underwhelmed, the choreography being one of the weaker points for me.
