Chris writes for the West End

Chris Lowe has written the music for a song in the famous play, "Bent", by Martin Sherman, which is to be revived in London at the Trafalgar Studios from September 22. The director of the play, Daniel Kramer, asked Pet Shop Boys to write the music for the song "Streets of Berlin" which already had lyrics by Martin Sherman. As Neil was, ironically, in the streets of Berlin working on Rufus Wainwright's new album, Chris wrote the music by himself. In previous productions, the lyrics have been set to music by both Philip Glass and Mick Jagger. The producers tell us that: "The first major production of this extraordinary landmark play in over sixteen years marks the return of Olivier and Tony award-winning actor Alan Cumming to the West End stage. BENT follows one man's journey from the hedonistic cabarets and clubs of 1930's Berlin to the inhuman excesses of an oppressive regime. When Max (Alan Cumming) falls in love with a fellow prisoner he discovers the true meaning of love and self-acceptance against impossible odds." Visitors to this website can claim a £25 ticket offer.
