THAT MAN is a new stage musical set in London’s world-famous Flamingo Club in 1957, featuring the retro jazz sound of award-winning recording artist Caro Emerald.
The show boasts a song list of hits from Caro Emerald’s albums, and a captivating story about a young singer Rosa who arrives in London and auditions to perform at the world-famous Flamingo Club, before falling for the charms of City playboy Rick. Set against the backdrop of London’s post-war class divisions and moral tensions, and Soho’s more liberal night scene, THAT MAN beautifully evokes an iconic era from London’s past, and an iconic nightspot too, whilst telling a tale of love, lust, and loss that is universal.
THAT MAN is presented with the full endorsement of Caro Emerald’s record company, management team, and publishers - Grandmono - based in the Netherlands.
With a book by Wendy Gill and songs by Caro’s acclaimed writing team David Schreurs and Vincent Degiorgio, THAT MAN has been developed over a number of years under the guidance of a professional stage director, Paul Boyd, with a workshop performance in London in 2014 and a special staged concert performed in the West End in 2016.
