LIFT
Music and Lyrics by Craig Adams
Book by Ian Watson

A contemporary musical set in London with a rich and complex musical score. The journey of the LIFT takes one minute (or thereabouts) but the journey of the show takes us through a minute within everyone’s imagination, allowing us to say and see things that might not be possible in real life. The original London production starred Cynthia Erivo, Julie Atherton and George Maguire. Popular songs from the show include “It’s Been A Year” and “Lost in Translations” the latter of which has featured on both Kerry Ellis and Julie Atherton’s albums. 

“Adams’ witty and poignant score brings coherence amongst fragmented bursts of dialogue, each song an eruption of unsaid truth” **** Whatsonstage.com (Soho Theatre Production)
