Susan Stroman’s production will head to the West End from the 24th June.
It has been confirmed that the production will be heading to the Gillian Lynne Theatre, following a successful run at the Chichester Festival Theatre over the Summer.
Theatre-mad Bobby Child is torn between his show-business dreams and running the family bank. He reluctantly heads west to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theatre’s mortgage, only to fall for the theatre owner’s daughter, Polly. Desperate to prove his good faith, Bobby decides to put on a show – complete with dancers from the glamorous Zangler Follies in New York City – to save the theatre, renew the town and hopefully win Polly’s love.
Directed and choreographed by multi-Tony and Olivier award winner Susan Stroman, with book by Olivier Award winning Ken Ludwig, the musical features music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin.
This West End transfer will see Charlie Stemp, the Olivier-nominated star of Half a Sixpence and Mary Poppins as Bobby, Carly Anderson, star of Wicked as Polly, and Drama Desk Award winner Tom Edden as Bela Zangler, reprising their roles from the Chichester run.
The creative team behind the production includes: Set Designer Beowulf Boritt, Costume Designer William Ivey Long, Lighting Designer Ken Billington, Sound Designer Kai Harada and Musical Supervisor & Musical Director Alan Williams,.
