Charles Ledigo, chairman of Reisser, has significantly funded the production of a new musical based on the lives and music of The Small Faces.
‘All or Nothing’ captures the very essence of all that was cool in the 1960’s, and will play at The Vaults Theatre in London’s Waterloo from 31 March until 30 April, 2016, with a full UK tour in the pipeline.
Telling the rollercoaster story of The Small Faces, ‘All or Nothing’ is an exciting, poignant, and bittersweet tale of Kenney Jones, Ian McLagan, Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott; four charismatic young kids from East London with humour, attitude, passion and above all talent. The Small Faces were rocketed into the big time, only to discover the path to fantastic success heaving with exploitation, corruption, betrayal and tragedy.
Speaking about the musical Mr Ledigo said: “The Small Faces are a legendary British band and I am delighted to be associated with this show. Their iconic sound influenced further generations, such as Paul Weller and The Jam, and this musical is an authentic and hugely entertaining depiction of a great period from UK music history.”
Written by actress, writer and producer Carol Harrison, who also stars in the show, and directed by BAFTA winner Tony McHale, ‘All or Nothing’ celebrates the unique sound of the iconic Mod band. The musical is packed full of all the hits, including Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Tin Soldier, Lazy Sunday, Here Comes the Nice, Itchycoo Park and All or Nothing.
