Joe Lewis & The Denmark St. Big Band perform The American Songbook
Joe Lewis’s obsession with Big Band & Swing Jazz began at his father’s knee ... when Joe Sr. would constantly play LPs by Sinatra, Davis Jr, Bennett & Darin ...

The timeless, inspirational sound of these artists became the soundtrack to Joe Jnr’s life, and his dedication and superb vocal technique have created stunning tributes to his idols. 

Earlier this year, Joe met a fellow obsessive in Paul Burch, Leader of the Denmark Street Big Band. They joined forces and began a series of intimate gigs, performing classic Big Band Swing numbers. 

These sellout shows and ecstatic audiences marked the arrival of a major new force on the British swing scene. 

The Charing Cross Theatre is delighted to present the West End Premiere of Joe Lewis and the Denmark Street Big Band’s “Great American Songbook Show “

We only have 265 seats and we anticipate another sellout, so make sure you are one of the few who will always be able to say: “I was there“, and book early!

'Genuinely enchanting' and 'utterly gorgeous' (★★★★ Time Out), Hannah Chissick's 'delightful' (★★★★★ Broadway World), 'decadent' (★★★★★ Attitude) and 'irresistibly charming' (★★★★ The Stage) production tells the miraculous tale of a shy, unassuming civil servant who dares to dream. A brilliantly witty and deliciously surreal musical fantasy about the power of self-belief. Catch it while you can!

When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.

Starring Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil, Anna O'Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle and Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, alongside Elissa Churchill (Elephant Steps), Claire Machin (Memphis), Keith Ramsay (The Cereal Cafe), Jack Reitman (Thrill Me), Steven Serlin (The Wild Party) and Alistair So (The King And I), with understudy Laura Barnard.

★★★★★ Mark Shenton 'I was walking through air as I left the theatre.'

★★★★★ MusicalTheatreReview 'Lifts Legrand's extraordinary music to even greater heights.'

★★★★ WhatsOnStage 'No shortage of cinematic dazzle and it never misses a beat.'
