The London Musical Theatre Orchestra have confirmed the full casting for their upcoming concert production of Honeymoon in Vegas.
Joining the previously announced Samantha Barks and Arthur Darvill will be Maxwell Caulfield, Rosemary Ashe, Nicolas Colicos and Simon Lipkin , with supporting roles played by Daniel Amity, Maisey Bawden and Hywel Dowsell.
Honeymoon in Vegas is the first public performance for the London Musical Theatre Orchestra in 2017, following the successful concert productions of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s State Fair (Cadogan Hall November 2016) and Alan Menken & Lynn Ahrens‘ A Christmas Carol (Lyceum Theatre, December 2016).
This concert will also see the return of Shaun Kerrison who previously directed the LMTO’s concert of A Christmas Carol.
Based on the hit 1992 film starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicholas Cage, Honeymoon in Vegas tells the story of mild-mannered Brooklynite, Jack, who haunted by the fear of a promise to his dying mother never to get married, avoids proposing to his new girlfriend Betsy. He finally summons the nerve and takes Betsy to Las Vegas only to have his plans compromised by a dashing gambler with an eye for luxury and Jack’s new fiancée.
Honeymoon in Vegas will be conducted by the show’s composer Jason Robert Brown, who will be the first guest conductor for the London Musical Theatre Orchestra.
