‘THE PRODUCTION IS A DELIGHT AS SILLY YET SMART A CATCH-ALL FOR A SWELL BUNCH OF SONGS AS YOU COULD WISH FOR.’ THE TIMES

★★★★★

‘IRRESISTIBLE, IRREPRESSIBLE, INVENTIVE , BURSTS WITH A CRAZY, LOVABLE SPIRIT.’ MARK SHENTON, THE STAGE

High energy, high kicking and gloriously glamorous, this acclaimed Watermill theatre production is the ultimate feel-good musical. Strictly Come Dancing winner Tom Chambers stars with Charlotte Wakefield (Sound of Music, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) as ‘Polly’ in this multi-award winning, romantic comedy, featuring a fabulous score from the gershwin brothers’ songbook. It charts the troubled love story of Bobby, son of a wealthy new York banking family and frustrated Broadway hoofer, and Polly, daughter of the proprietor of a failing theatre in Deadrock, nevada. Sent to close the theatre down, Bobby falls for Polly and, in the guise of a Hungarian impresario, decides to save the theatre by putting on a show. mistaken identities, heartbreak, happiness and a wealth of memorable tunes, including I got Rhythm, they Can’t take that away From me, nice Work If You Can get It and Embraceable You all feature in this exhilarating celebration of the great Broadway musicals.

andrew Lloyd Webber’s tony award®-winning masterpiece Sunset Boulevard, starring Ria Jones, who received standing ovations every night when performing the role at the London Coliseum as norma Desmond, comes to the Regent theatre Ipswich for one week only. one of the all-time great musicals, Sunset Boulevard is a compelling story of romance and obsession, based on Billy Wilder’s legendary film, with Don Black and Christopher Hampton's wonderful book and lyrics. In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess, norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screen writer, Joe gillis, on the run from debt collectors, stumbles into her reclusive world. Persuaded to work on norma’s ‘masterpiece’, a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic world until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free, with dramatic consequences. With its much-loved score (including Sunset Boulevard, With one Look, the greatest Star of all and the Perfect Year) performed with full orchestra, this “maJEStIC, mESmERIZIng anD tEaSIngLY SEDuCtIVE!” (the Evening Standard) production promises to be a spectacular event.

THE MUSICAL FOR ALL TIME BILL KENWRIGHT PRESENTS

THEIR LIVES WERE WORLDS APART...

BEST

‘BRINGS THE AUDIENCE CHEERING TO ITS FEET AND ROARING APPROVAL’ DAILY MAIL

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary BLOOD BROTHERS tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences. Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multiaward winning BLOOD BROTHERS. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail). The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
