Connie Fisher, Michael Xavier and Lucy Van Gasse star in the multi-award winning musical comedy Wonderful Town at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking from Tue 19 – Sat 23 June.
Brought to you by the producers of hit musical Top Hat, this major new production performed by a terrific cast and orchestra of over 40, bursts onto stage with fantastic choreography, stunning costumes and a sensational score. The show recreates the bright lights of 1930s New York City with the rich sound of Leonard Bernstein’s magnificent music.
Following a run at The Lowry in Salford where it has received rave reviews, this revival tour of Wonderful Town is directed by The Royal Exchange Theatre Artistic Director Braham Murray OBE. Set to a superb score by legendary American composer Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story), the show has received countless awards since its premiere in 1953 including the prestigious Tony Award for Best Musical.
Connie Fisher, star of The Sound of Music and of the BBC’s How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, plays aspiring writer Ruth Sherwood who arrives in New York with her beautiful younger sister Eileen. The indomitable pair meet an array of colourful characters along the way, creating chaos at every turn in their search for romance, success and a free meal from Walgreen’s deli.
Joining Connie playing her younger sister, Eileen, is Lucy Van Gasse. Lucy, awarded the Sir Geraint Evans Award for Outstanding Performance made her professional debut in the West End starring in the original cast of Love Never Dies and Double Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier whose credits include Love Story and Phantom of the Opera, stars as Bob Baker.
This is a sharp, funny and heart-warming musical comedy and a must-see for any fan of the classic all-singing, all-dancing musicals. Prepare for a wonderful evening with Wonderful Town.
