Yes, the show is cheesy and a little bit over the top at times, but it is also really uplifting. If you’re looking for a fun, feel-good, romantic musical to see this summer, then An Officer and a Gentlemen is the perfect ticket.
Stars of the An Officer and a Gentleman musical tour, Jonny Fines, Emma Williams, Ian McIntosh and Jessica Daley, sat down with me before a recent performance to discuss the musical.
An Officer and a Gentleman, beginning its national tour at Curve Leicester, is a show that is unashamedly feel-good, even through its darker moments, and just waiting to sweep you off your feet.
This new musical adaptation of An Officer and a Gentleman, receiving its world premiere at Curve, makes no apologies for embracing the melodrama of the movie. In doing so, it delivers a polished, unabashed production
Jonny Fines and Emma Williams will lead the cast of the world premiere production of An Officer and a Gentleman – The Musical when the show opens at Curve on 6 April 2018 (press night 19 April) before beginning a UK and Ireland tour.
