A cappella musical opens today in London
- Following sell-out success, critical acclaim and awards at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2008 and 2009, Barbershopera return to London with their latest a cappella comedy musical - Barbershopera II. The talented foursome tell the story of a Catalan matador who inherits his dead father's barbershop in Shavingham, Norfolk.
Will our young hero manage to enchant the locals with his continental flair? Will he uncover the murky mystery of his father's death? Could he possibly succeed in taking on local hairdresser extraordinaire Trevor Sorbet in a dramatic cut-off? Can he even hope to win the heart of the beautiful town crier? And will he ever leave Norfolk again?
The co-writing team of Rob Castell and Tom Sadler and director Sarah Tipple have come together again to create another madcap but beautifully harmonious show. They perform with returning `barbershopper' Lara Stubbs, whilst Pete Sorel-Cameron makes his London debut with the company. Barbershopera II delighted audiences at Edinburgh Fringe 2009 and won the award for Most Promising Lyrics at the Musical Theatre Matters Awards (their previous show won this accolade in 2008).
