GO! The Musical

With rhyme and rhythm comes this musical retelling of the lesser-known part of Exodus. Ancient Egypt arrives in London this summer, with a cast including Harel Glazer (The Band's Visit at Donmar Warehouse), Alexandra Doar (Bat Out of Hell, West End), Rushand Chambers (For Black Boys, West End) and Ayesha Patel (Lizzie, Southwark Playhouse). This production, packed with power and politics, follows a prince’s descent into chaos after freeing his people from Pharaoh – aka his ‘mother’.

Having given up his succession to the Egyptian throne to rescue the slaves, Go! The Musical follows Moses, flipping between his royal past amongst palace scribes and astrologers and his battle against bitter disillusionment in the desert. It seems that the prince’s desperate journey is doomed – what happens when the promise of freedom from dictatorship threatens to fade back into oppression? Faced with rebellion by people who want to return to Egypt and caught between two identities, Moses is an embattled freedom fighter who must now decide whether to follow Pharaoh’s advice and crack down hard.

Looking through a modern and humorous lens, Go! The Musical touches on themes of today: politics and the messy reality of political change, differing leadership styles, immigrants and emigrants, the struggle by a generation of unrest to regain equilibrium and what happens when life’s big goal begins to slip away.
