Cast of LIFT
Perfect Pitch is a not-for-profit theatre company, supported by Arts Council England, dedicated to creating new British musicals. They work in collaboration with venues, writers, producers and creatives across the UK and beyond to create, develop, produce and license high quality new British musicals.

From Up Here is a musical by Aaron Lee Lambert that explores time, change and the choices that shape the lives of five very different people whose paths cross in the most unlikely of ways. With a fresh, contemporary score that draws influences from Adam Guettel and Jason Robert Brown, From Up Here asks the question: what makes life worth living? 

LIFT is about people and connections. The connections we have without knowing about them, the connections we lose sight of and the connections we don’t mean to have. It is a lesson in all things that go unsaid, opportunities not taken and those split second assumptions we make about faces we might pass everyday on our way to work but never even smile at. The cast includes Julie Atherton and Cynthia Erivo.
