AoN to play limited West End season


Following a third, critically acclaimed, sell-out tour, All or Nothing – the Mod musical, based on the story of the Small Faces, will play a limited West End season at the Arts Theatre, London from 6 February to 11 March 2018, with a press night on Thursday 8 February.

The producers of All or Nothing are also delighted to announce the release of a 29-track cast recording, as well as a limited edition 15-track blue vinyl LP are now available. Written and directed by the award-winning actress Carol Harrison, All or Nothing is the story of four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and, above all, talent.  They became the Small Faces and were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to success is paved with exploitation, betrayal and, ultimately, tragedy.  The cast at the Arts Theatre will be led by Carol Harrison as Kay Marriott and Chris Simmons as the older Steve Marriott.  Further casting is to be announced.

Carol Harrison said of the West End transfer: “I am honoured that All or Nothing has been embraced by so many wonderful audiences who have laughed, danced, wept and sang with us across the length and breadth of the country. I am so thrilled that we can now bring the All or Nothing experience to the West End.  Watch out, ‘cos the Mods are coming or maybe we just never went away!”

Carol Harrison is probably best known for her role as Louise Raymond in EastEnders. Other television roles include seven years as Gloria in Brushstrokes, Loretta opposite Ray Winstone in Get Back, and Dorothy in two series of London’s Burning.  Carol’s theatre work includes Michael Rudman’s production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman at the National, Ripen Our Darkness at the Royal Court, Alan Parker’s production of Alfie at the Liverpool Playhouse and Lee Hall’s Cooking with Elvis at the Lyceum Theatre, Crewe.  She was also a founder member of Half Moon Theatre in London’s East End.  Her film credits include The Elephant Man, Quadrophenia and Human Traffic.

Chris Simmons is probably best known for playing the role of DC Mickey Webb for over twelve years in the long running ITV series The Bill. He has also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Garland and in the Tracy Beaker spin-off CBBC show, The Dumping Ground.  Chris’s theatre credits include Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends (Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage), Entertaining Strangers (Lyric Hammersmith), Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (tour), Iago in Othello (tour) and Epicoene (Tristan Bates Theatre).

The show is endorsed and supported by many of those who feature in its story, including singer PP Arnold and Steve Marriott’s daughter, Mollie Marriott, who is the show’s vocal coach and creative consultant.

All or Nothing – the Mod musical is directed by Carol Harrison, with musical supervision by Pat Davey. It is produced in the West End by Rock ‘n’ Roll Productions.
