Broadway star Christie Prades will reprise her role as ‘Gloria Estefan’ for the UK premiere, alongside George Ioannides as ‘Emilio Estefan’, and at certain performances, the role of ‘Gloria Estefan’ will be played by Philippa Stefani.

A towering achievement, To Kill A Mockingbird comforts with nostalgic charm and crackles with potent relevance, the deft combination of which makes for an unforgettable night at the theatre.
On paper, the blue-chip title, solid production values and enthusiastic young cast should be enough to make Clueless the Musical a hit, yet the new Off-Broadway musical is missing the ever elusive magic ingredient needed to really make it fly.

The Boys in the Band is known for being the “first gay play”. Obviously not the first by any stretch it was, however, the first commercially successful, and if you will ‘mainstream’ gay play. It also was one of few to reach that status before the AIDS epidemic hit and changed the gay community.
