The Roar of the GreasepaintIan directed the London Première of the Bricusse/Newley Broadway Musical THE ROAR OF THE GREASEPAINT - THE SMELL OF THE CROWD at the Finborough Theatre in July 2011.


Ian Judge's beautifully crafted production is a joy to behold.  From the first seconds when the small group of urchins in the show's Circle of Life sing an invitation to enter the "Beautiful Land" right up to the final denoument of sweet rebirth, the audience is totally captivated by the magic and sheer theatricality that feasts their eyes and ears.
