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.


Music Director Ben Barrow comments, The central themes of ‘Go! The Musical’ carry so much
importance today: the idea that we all contribute to building a world for future generations to
live in particularly resonates, given our current political and environmental landscapes. The
music of this show combines contemporary ideas with epic musical theatre and integrates
spoken word and poetry with driving melodies and cinematic underscore – I’m really excited
about how it will sound.


Adam Taylor and co-writer Mikhal Taylor comment, This musical was inspired by the intriguing
personality of Moses – a troubled, impulsive, passionate, argumentative character, sometimes
ruthless, sometimes self-doubting, very human, no superhero, who never made it to the
promised land. In time, the dramatic journey of this beleaguered leader came to seem like an
obvious subject for a musical.
