About: Birds of Paradise

When a group of eccentric amateur actors attempt to stage an absurd new musical version of Chekhov's The Seagull, they each end up learning more than just their lines. As rehearsals go on, art starts to imitate life as they all learn valuable lessons in love and acceptance.

A joyful and witty comedy told through heartfelt songs and uplifting music, this UK premiere of Birds of Paradise will charm and delight fans of contemporary musical theatre. An early work of Winnie Holzman (writer of the book of Wicked), it showcases the comedic talents of one of the genre's most influential authors.

Following the successes of their previous five-star shows at The Drayton Arms with The Baker's Wife and Lucky Stiff, MKEC Productions continue their mission to bring high-quality stagings of lesser-known musicals to the London fringe and this production will be a must see for all musical theatre fans.

MKEC Productions; set up in 2014 by Marc Kelly and Elizabeth Chadwick, aims to produce high quality and accessible London fringe theatre. Marc and Elizabeth met during their time at University where they both studied Musical Theatre. Marc and Elizabeth have performed in the UK and around the world and have now come together to form MKEC Productions. Birds of Paradise is the highly awaited follow-up to Here’s to the Ladies who Belt, which premiered in January.

Reviews

"The score is filled with the kind of yearning diffused with joy that Holzman would bring to later projects like Wicked and My So-Called Life." Playbill

“MKEC Productions, laid out their credentials in 2015 when they scored a sell-out success with The Baker’s Wife at the venue. A year later they’re back and they’re on a roll…Lucky Stiff is dead funny from start to finish.” Stage Reviews on Lucky Stiff
