Review: My Lifelong Love – An Evening With Georgia Stitt and Friends – Garrick Theatre

October 28, 2014

My Lifelong Love – An Evening With Georgia Stitt and Friends was performed at the Garrick Theatre, London.

US composer and lyricist Georgia Stitt’s performance in My Lifelong Love at the Garrick Theatre marked her solo West End debut. The show featured songs from her three albums: This Ordinary Thursday, Alphabet City Cycleand My Lifelong Love, and also her shows Big Red Sun,Mosaic and Samantha Spade – Ace Detective in Act I, while Act II showcased her current work in progress, The Danger Year, which I hope we hear more of very soon.

There is no denying Stitt’s immense talent as a songwriter and musician. Every song is superbly crafted. She may often be called Mrs Jason Robert Brown, but her music has its own wonderful energy: strong pulsating rhythms, cross rhythms and shimmering running passages combine with classical, jazz, dance and R&B influences, and soaring melodic ‘hooks’ reinforce central themes. Her orchestral writing, and command, is wonderful – Stitt writes music for singers AND instrumentalists and it was notable that she credited her superb musicians and singers in equal measure.
