What's On > Wonderful Town

Tue 22 - Sat 26 May 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

Connie Fisher (The Sound of Music, winner of the BBC's How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria), double Olivier Award nominee Michael Xavier (Love Story, The Phantom of the Opera) and Lucy Van Gasse (Love Never Dies) star in the multi award-winning musical comedy, Wonderful Town.

Featuring a superb score by legendary American composer Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story), the show has received countless awards since its premiere in 1953 including the prestigious Tony Award for Best Musical.

Connie plays aspiring writer Ruth Sherwood who arrives in New York City fresh from Ohio with her beautiful younger sister Eileen. Bursting with dreams of romance, riches and a free lunch at Walgreen's deli, the indomitable pair meet an array of colourful characters in their search for success, causing chaos and delight at every turn.

Wonderful Town recreates the bright lights and vibrant energy of 1930s New York City, with spectacular sets, stunning costumes, dazzling choreography and the rich sound of Bernstein's magnificent music, performed by a company of over 40 actors, dancers and musicians.

Book now for the musical comedy of the year – hailed by the critics as the must-see show for 2012!
