Free West End shows come to the London Coliseum with the Broadway Florist’s boo•kay
This Friday, Broadway florist boo•kay presents a free performance of musical theater hits in the lobby of the historic London Coliseum, St Martin’s Lane, with drinks on arrival.
Performing regularly at boo•kay’s New York base, this time their team of star performers bring Friday cheer to their new London pop-up in the heart of the West End.
Each performance of Friday Flowers is carefully organized. This week’s performance is a medley from the hit show An American In Paris, performed by some of the best talent the West End has to offer.
Performers include boo•kay founder and An American In Paris star Robbie Fairchildas good as David Seadon Young (An American in Paris, Oklahoma!), Zoe Rainey (Wicked, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast) and Haydn Oakley (Anything Goes, The Book of Mormon).
boo•kay was created in the heat of the global pandemic. With Broadway and the performing arts houses closed, Robbie Fairchild turned to his flower arranging skills to ensure the show would go on. As business boomed, he made it his mission to use his business to hire other out-of-work Broadway performers who also shared his enthusiasm for floristry.
Marrying their team’s signature combination of floral art and performing skills, Friday Flowers is a tradition that began at the start of lockdown, providing one of the only performance opportunities for Broadway stars to put on a show. This tradition has been carried over to boo•kay’s new home at the London Coliseum.
