Richard Beadle

The shelves are generally a mess but I try to keep authors or sets of books together for easy access. You’ll see Christopher Hitchens next to Larsson, Pullman, McEwan and the Hunger Games trilogy. Most of the lower sections are reference books for my music career including books on orchestration, vocal coaching and biographies including Bernstein, Gershwin, Brian Wilson and The Beatles. The CD collection on the right hand side is dominated by The West Wing box set which is a fairly honest representation of my life!


Richard Beadle is a musical director and composer and is currently MD of The Bodyguard at London’s Adelphi Theatre. Other musical director and supervisor credits include Betty Blue Eyes (Novello Theatre), Hair (Gielgud Theatre), Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert (Palace Theatre) and Grease (Piccadilly Theatre). Richard has written and produced songs for many singers as well as writing two musicals, various orchestral and symphonic pieces & music for video games, film and library music.
