The exceptional new British musical EXPOSURE The Musical celebrates its world première on London’s West End this July.
Written by Mike Dyer and Quentin Russell and directed by Phil Willmott, EXPOSURE The Musical is a pulsating, edge-of-your-seat account of the greatest challenge of a young photographer’s career.
When photographer Jimmy Tucker is commissioned by a stranger to photograph the seven deadly sins in modern-day London, he embarks on an exhilarating sprint through the night. In his search for sin Jimmy comes face to face with family history, girlfriends and the seemingly irrepressible cult of celebrity, but these encounters hint at something bigger. As Jimmy plunges deeper into his work he discovers that there is more at stake here than a payday.
This scintillating new musical features an awe-inspiring contemporary musical score that masterfully frames a sharp and witty picture of the toxicity of fame. Produced in partnership with Getty Images, EXPOSURE The Musical also features some of the most iconic and affecting photographs from one of the world’s greatest collections.
Creative, innovative and unmissable, EXPOSURE The Musical will be playing for a strictly limited season at the St James Theatre; book your tickets today.
Exposure The Musical reviews
Thought the show was fantastic, singers and dancers were amazing, would definately go see it again and again, what a great story and production.
#Exposure at the St James Theatre 16/08/16 - Heard mixed reviews prior to seeing it this evening... I went with an open mind and wasn't disappointed. Several things stood out for me! Musically it was a new and quite complex score but it was performed with clarity; the melodies got your foot tapping and your head nodding along. A mix of a more rock vibe in contrast with your ballad staple. Harmonies were strong and well executed. Choreography was OUTSTANDING! A small cast that were kept busy throughout. Technically and visually superb! And those of us that do like something nice to look at... Well, I enjoyed!!!
Went to see this as the subject sounded interesting - Photography and the pull between Integrity and Exploitation. Overall very good performance - music and choreography was good, plot didn't quite hang together but I enjoyed it, and it was very intense in the second half.
Very energetic tight good looking cast is not enough Hackneyed events happen too fast in act one Pandora becomes a star to get out of the Estates he falls in love with a homeless girl and act two is TOO convoluted with the Seven Deadly sins motif and the devil... it becomes a trite devil for your soul thing which have seen many many time before
Well what a lovely surprise, we weren't sure what to expect as a new show and had not heard much about it! But what a fabulous evening we had, I won't spoil the storyline, but full of intensity, amazing singing, dancing and such a talented cast. I know it finishes on the 27th August, but if you can get tickets I can't recommend it enough. It has made me think we must try and see more new shows as I think as an audience we are missing out! First visit to St James Theatre and found it a lovely modern venue! Thank-you all for a wonderful evening out.
An excellent musical with a new and fresh approach! Exposure makes you laugh and cry. It covers thought provoking topics of our society today. The singing and dancing is amazing and you leave singing the songs.
We booked to see this show at the last moment and were pleased we acted on the impulse. The show itself was vibrant to say the least, everyone on stage believed in what they were doing and it showed, they gave 100% and it was obvious they enjoyed themselves. The singing, as was the music, was spot on and varied in style, ballads to rock and executed perfectly. Thoroughly enjoyed the show, and being a photographer myself it added interest. I would recommend this show without hesitation. I would have given 5 stars, but I based my rating on the overall experience, unfortunately there was a technical fault before the start of the second half which spoilt it somewhat
Such a great show! Cast is brilliant! Amazing use of projections and the set is so cool! The story is interesting and engaging. Thoroughly enjoyed this show!
Brilliant cast / fab singing / great storyline / and stage set! took 3 friends - so glad we went! highly recommended!!
Brilliant performance singing and dancing was great and very energetic routines , would recommend this show and venue. We were all impressed.
Really great edgy and exciting show. Amazing songs, great cast and band. Highly recommended!
The songs and performances are great - particularly the lead female roles with some terrific singing and very poignant moments - so it's all good from that point of view but the script and direction lacked a bit of oomph! and I thought some of the script lines were a bit naive given the subject matter - but all in all it was really worth seeing. I enjoyed it very much.
Saw this show on a preview night Thursday 21st July. Had front row seats in this packed theatre for this cracking show, very talented cast and amazing vocals throughout. Very innovative use of media projection as scenery backdrops as well as setting themes in songs, probably better views sitting further back but front row was my choice. Special mention must go to the amazing band and Musical director who kept the pace going in several rock based songs including a powerful section covering the 7 deadly sins..... Wow! If your in London over the next few months then I would highly recommend going to see this show, it's well worth it.
The actors bared their souls on stage with their performances. The songs were very catchy and at times I found myself singing along to them. I liked how simple the set looked, it helped to put more of a focus on the performers.
It had a great variety of music, delivered with passionate singing and amazing acting! The girls in the audience seemed to enjoy the view of some half-naked men. The actress who played Pandora captured the role of a broken superstar from stardom to decline and it was fantastic. It is still a preview, so I believe the future performances will be even better.
What a shame! The only thing I knew about this production before last night was what I had seen on the posters and that I was drawn in by a glitzy marketing campaign. Stock characters, boring direction.... We were left with the feeling that Exposure was a high budget piece of A Level theatre. Oh what a surprise! Drug dependency, unwanted pregnancy and daddy issues were the crux of this plot development. On the plus side, the choreography was fantastic, the ensemble cast were a breath of fresh air and all three leads had unbelievable singing voices. Some talented on stage performances, it was just unfortunate that they didn't have a better script to work with.
