This world premier celebrates the genius of Charlie Chaplin in an all new music-theatre piece for which Johnson has composed an original score. This multi-media experience also features some of the classic, familiar Chaplin originals.
Godfrey Johnson has celebrated the work of Noël Coward, Jacques Brel, Liberace and Vaslav Nijinsky. Now he and director Mark Graham-Wilson join artistic hands for the first time to create SMILE.
