Stephen Ward Press Launch

Close friends of the production and some key members of the press were yesterday invited to an exclusive Stephen Ward launch event in London's Soho.

The full cast came together for a special performance of 4 numbers from the show, including a haunting rendition of the opening number "Human Sacrifice" by Alex Hanson (Stephen Ward).

Director Richard Eyre was there to introduce the performances and talk us through the story, giving some narrative context to each piece. Those who attended were also treated to a special talk from composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, who later joined cast member Joanna Riding (Valerie Hobson) on stage to lend a piano accompaniment to her closing performance "I'm Hopeless When It Comes To You".

Exclusive videos of all performances are now available on our YouTube channel, including the full company number "You've Never Had It So Good" and the heart warming ballad between Alex Hanson and Charlotte Spencer (Christine Keeler) "This Side Of The Sky".
