Tickets go on sale next week, with additional locations and additional cast to be revealed.
Production is directed by Casey Nicholaw with set and costume design by Tim Hatley, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, sound design by Richard Brooker, hair design by Josh Marquette and music supervision by Nick Finlow. He was nominated for five WhatsOnStage Awards, winning one, and six Tony Awards, winning two.
When the show first opened in the West End, WhatsOnStage reviewer Sarah Crompton awarded it four stars, saying it was: “a patch filled with joy, full of panache and passion.”
