Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company has confirmed the full cast for its forthcoming production of Sweet Charity – its first musical production since 2006 (31 August to 22 September 2018, press night is 5 September).
Miss Atomic Bomb blasts onto the St James stage with a visually impressive bang. In a show that’s a chain reaction of spectacular dance work (including some delicious tap routines), choreographer Bill Deamer’s fingerprints (or rather footprints) are everywhere. Deamer, who also co-directs, has a consummate understanding of the spectacular and the dancing here is amongst the best in town.
As we take to our seat we see an open stage where Stephen Wight (Lee) cuts an isolated and tortured figure, pacing the stage, lost in his thoughts almost as if obsessive compulsive tendencies are playing havoc with his mind. This historic theatre is one of immense beauty, opulence, luxury and completely fitting to host this new piece written by James Phillips.
