Opening at the Hippodrome Casino from the 21st March, the West End debut for new British musical Miss Nightingale has been announced.
Presented by Mr Bugg Presents, Miss Nightingale will run for a strictly limited seven week run at the Hippodrome Casino’s 180 seat theatre from the 21st March.
Created and written by Matthew Bugg, Miss Nightingale is set in 1940’s London during World War Two and features sixteen original songs that capture the spirit of the era.
Maggie Brown, an aspiring singer and her best friend George Nowodny, a songwriter and Jewish refugee, perform a dazzling act at the newest nightclub in town, owned by wealthy socialite and RAF war-hero, Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe. Maggie’s beau Tom Connor, paves the way for the sexy and charismatic ‘Miss Nightingale’ to be born, and the musical duo quickly find themselves with a West End hit! However, what the leading lady doesn’t know, is that George and Sir Frank are hiding a secret and as Miss Nightingale’s success grows, so does a forbidden love between the two men!
This new British musical will features a cast of six actor-musicians, led by Lauren Chinery in the title role, alongside Oliver Mawdsley as Frank, Matthew Floyd Jones as George, Adam Langstaff as Tom, Tobias Oliver as Clifford and Matthew Bugg himself, in the role of Harry.
