The Lowdown- a musical theatre scratch night

The only regular public scratch night for new musical theatre in London.

Four musicals in development are presented in 20 minute work- in- progress extracts over one evening.  The audience will be asked to give honest feedback on all of the extracts, with the view to how each can develop in the future.

Shows that have developed at The Lowdown have gone on to perform at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe, VAULT Festival, Phoenix Artists Club.

The next Lowdown will be in May 2017 at Rich Mix.
