Why See Rex Orange County?
Rex Orange County - One To Watch
In 2016, at the tender age of 18, Brit School graduate Alex O'Connor AKA Rex Orange County had been flying under the radar, quietly releasing his bedroom-produced tracks when it emerged Odd Future leader Tyler The Creator was an ardent fan, flying him out to record songs for his 2017 album Flower Boy. Fusing hip-hop, soul, electronica and jazz in the cerebral style of Frank Ocean and Tom Misch, the English singer songwriter is heading out on a brief headline tour on US shores this Summer.
Marked as the next big thing ever since his collaboration with Tyler culminated in album standout tracks Foreward and Boredom, Rex Orange County self-released his second studio album Apricot Princess in 2017. With a mature sound that belies his young years, the album captures the joyful butterflies-in-your-stomach feeling of falling in love, evoking hazy summer months with subtle grooves, lilting melodies and reverb-drenched surf guitar.
Performance date: 30 July 2018

The show is every bit as grand, electric, quiet, and transportive as its Broadway counterpart; in certain actors' cases, perhaps even more so!
