ALAN BRODIE REPRESENTS THE JULIAN SLADE LITERARY ESTATE
Making their first change of theatrical agency for ten years Julian Slade’s two surviving brothers Christopher and Adrian, the executors of his Literary Estate, are delighted that Alan Brodie has agreed to become their theatrical representative.
Alan Brodie Representation is one of London’s best known agencies, counting among its clients not just a number of well known actors, directors and dramatists but also other important literary estates including Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, Bertolt Brecht, Thornton Wilder and NF Simpson.
Commenting on his appointment Alan Brodie said “I am thrilled to be representing the Estate of Julian Slade. Julian is such an important part of the history of the Great British Songbook and has to be mentioned in same breath as such great British post-war songwriters like Noël Coward, Ivor Novello, Sandy Wilson and Vivian Ellis. I am a huge admirer of his work and am determined to do everything I possibly can to bring him to the attention of new generations of audience.”
Adrian Slade adds. “We are really delighted that Alan is now working with us. I have long been an admirer of the fantastic job he and his team do for the Noël Coward Estate and we were very pleased to discover his enthusiasm for Julian’s work and his willingness to help us to promote it. When productions of Julian’s ‘Salad Days’ and ‘Free As Air’ were staged in London again not long ago they demonstrated very well how his shows and music can also appeal to modern audiences. There is plenty more of his work where those shows came from. We hope today’s public may soon become more familiar with it.
