The road to happiness is a bumpy ride.
Based on the Oscar-winning film, Little Miss Sunshine is a new musical comedy from Tony Award-winners James Lapine (Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George) and William Finn (Falsettos, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).
This European premiere stars two-time Olivier-award nominee Paul Keating (Tick Tick Boom, The Wizard of Oz – London Palladium, Little Shop of Horrors, The Full Monty), Gabriel Vick (Sunny Afternoon, Avenue Q, Les Misérables, Eastenders), and Ian Carlyle (The Lion King, We Will Rock You), with further casting to be announced.
Lapine and Finn’s inventive musical version opens in London in a brand-new production directed by Arcola Artistic Director Mehmet Ergen, then takes to the road for a national tour.
Not originally intended to be a theatre, the buildings that comprise the Grand Opera House York officially opened in 1902 with Little Red Riding Hood starring Florrie Ford. Since then it has been owned by FJ Butterworth, the Shepherd of Shambles and the India Pru Co. Ltd who spent £4,000,000 restoring the theatre to its former glory in 1987.
