An evening with Tim rice!
NLP Ltd are incredibly proud to announce that internationally renowned lyricist and author Tim Rice is set to embark on his first unique theatre tour in 2023.
This amazing behind-the-scenes, no holds barred evening of stories and songs will only be performed on four prestigious dates in February 2023, opening at the Royal & Derngate, Northampton, followed by Wolverhampton Grand, Malvern Theatres (Forum), finishing at Newcastle Theatre Royal.
This exceptional show will reveal all, but who better to explain than the eminent wordsmith himself?
“Circle Of Words is a show in which I reveal all (well, nearly all) of the secrets behind the creation of some of the best-known songs featuring my lyrics. I have had the good fortune to work with some of the greatest composers of our time, including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, Elton John and Alan Menken, without whose wonderful melodies I’d be at home watching television.
You’ll probably know quite a few of the songs – and will therefore be relieved to hear I won’t be singing them. All musical aspects of the show I hand over to the outstanding Duncan Waugh Band and Singers. There will be plenty of stops in between the hits during which I’ll tell you how they happened and, in some cases, nearly didn’t. Actually, I might sing a little – but not Don’t Cry For Me Argentina.” – Tim Rice
