We are back. And we are back with a vengeance. After all those months without live entertainment, this time round we are simply celebrating musical theatre and the return of live music. Lloyd-Webber & Sondheim, SMASH & DEAR EVAN HANSEN, laughter, tears & comedy - and an ABBA sing-along… you name it, we got it! With Ricardo Nunes Fernandes back on the Steinway and welcoming our guest performers Jenna Ryder-Oliver (vocals) & Hristo Dunev (violin).

"It is clear Loman is a deeply sensitive man who wears his self-protective layers on his proverbial sleeve."
