Phoenix Theatre
West End

Gary Barlow will have a busy year in the West End in 2017, when it is rumoured that three productions with music by the Ivor Novello Award-winning composer will make their West End debuts. The first of these three shows, and so far the only one to be confirmed, is The Girls. Written with Tim Firth, The Girls is a musical inspired by the hit film Calendar Girls which enjoyed huge success on its 2003 release.

Tim Firth wrote the film Calendar Girls, and grew up in the same town as Gary Barlow. They have been friends for twenty five years and The Girls marks their first collaboration.

The show premiered in November 2015 at the Leeds Grand Theatre, and also played the Lowry in Salford Quays in January 2016, both productions acting as tryouts for an intended West End run.

The London production opens in the West End in January 2017 at the Phoenix Theatre, produced by David Pugh, Dafydd Rogers and The Shubert Organization.

The Girls Synopsis: 

Based on a true story, The Girls focuses on a group of ladies who achieved something quite extraordinary in their quest to raise money to buy a sofa for the visitor’s centre at their local hospital. By appearing in a nude calendar, they raised over three million pounds and became a global phenomenon. The musical will explore life in the Yorkshire village they called home, how their actions effected their families, and how they gained international fame.
