About

John Berry and Anthony Lilley formed Scenario Two in 2017 and are internationally recognised for their award-winning work in opera, musical theatre, scripted TV drama, film and innovation in the latest digital media.

Scenario Two believe that musical theatre can share universal stories and move and entertain popular audiences as no other medium can, and that audiences recognise and respect quality above everything.

During John’s time as Artistic Director at ENO he collaborated with the Grade-Linnit Company to produce the critically acclaimed star-driven musical theatre projects, Sweeney Todd with Emma Thompson and Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close at the London Coliseum. Summer 2019 saw Scenario Two’s first independent production, The Light in the Piazza with Disney star Dove Cameron and opera legend Renee Fleming at London’s Royal Festival Hall which travelled to Los Angeles Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera House and is scheduled for the Sydney Opera House in 2022.

Scenario Two’s focus is on musical theatre and we collaborate with leading global talent from across the widest range of art forms and are currently developing four major international musical theatre projects.
