A sing-along musical theatre piano bar has opened its doors in London, just fifty yards from Marble Arch.
Whether you sip cocktails, savour wine or love a beer, whether you are a discerning show-tunes aficionado or just want a drink, everyone is invited to enjoy the uplifting, magical feeling of musicals in OVERTURES fun-filled, unique bar.
Located in the basement of LGBTQ pub, the City of Quebec, OVERTURES is London’s answer to the renowned Marie’s Crisis Café in New York. The evenings are unplugged and spontaneous; it’s just the crowd, the piano, the pianist and the showtunes. There’s no set list, no stage, no microphone and no shooshing. Everyone’s welcome to sing their heart out… or just stand and enjoy the musical mavens.
It’s riotous and rambunctious and welcomes all ages, all sexual orientations, all backgrounds and all singing levels.
Songs on offer range from popular classics such as Les Misérables, Wicked, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music and Grease, to cult showtunes from Stephen Sondheim’s musicals and everything in between.
OVERTURES aims to be a place where people can come together and gather nightly round the keys. Grab a traditional New York style cocktail and take a pew. But, most importantly, sing! Be one voice in a big crowd singing in unison.
OVERTURES will feature regular guest appearances from the famed pianists and singing bar tenders from Marie’s Crisis Café, as well as showcasing homegrown talent.
When: Wednesday – Saturday, 6pm to 2am
Where: Overtures Piano Bar, 12 Old Quebec Street, Marylebone, London W1H 7AF
