The Heather Brothers
Born in London they grew up in Zimbabwe and spent their teenage years touring with their rock’n roll band. On returning to England they continued their music career recording with various major record labels before joining an international music publisher as contract songwriters. During this period they wrote their first musical, BIG SIN CITY, which after a highly successful national tour of Britain, went on to play a season at London’s Roundhouse, as did their second musical, THE COMEBACK, which they co-produced. They then wrote and produced A SLICE OF SATURDAY NIGHT, their award winning 60’s pastiche musical. After an extended run at the Kings Head and breaking all records at the Arts Theatre in London’s West End when it transferred, A SLICE OF SATURDAY NIGHT, went on to complete four major national tours of Britain, two European tours and two tours of Japan – returning to the west end for a second run at the Strand Theatre. The show has now enjoyed well over 300 productions world-wide and has been translated into nine languages. Recently the show played a limited season Off-Broadway under the American title “Caf A Go-Go”. Productions of Caf A Go-Go are set to open in Detroit and Toronto. When their next musical, LUST opened at The Theatre Royal Haymarket, it meant the Brothers had two shows running simultaneously in London’s West End. LUST has subsequently been translated into Swedish and played a very successful season in Norrkoping, Sweden’s National Theatre. LUST received it’s American premiere at the prestigious Walnut Street Theatre, Philadelphia, before transferring to the John Houseman Theatre in New York. vTheir thriller, BLOOD MONEY, which premiered at the Derby Playhouse also received its American premiere at The Walnut Street Theatre. Their latest theatrical ventures are, SIN AND SALVATION a black comedy musical and OZ AND THE POM a comedy. They are currently developing TEEN SCREAM a musical parody of the horror genre.
