A Kander & Ebb premiere in the West End you say? Curtains makes its bow at the Wyndham’s Theatre and I had an arrestingly good time with it.
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).
So why haven’t many Rodgers and Hammerstein aficionados heard about it and why has this never been performed in the UK? Is this forgotten musical best placed as just that or have we been missing an absolute gem?
