It’s the delicious new musical that became the crème de la crème of Broadway, but Sara Bareilles has confirmed Waitress is looking to transfer to the West End....
Beautiful Thing returns to the West End's Arts Theatre
Directed by Nikolai Foster, this anniversary production will star Charlie Brooks as Sandra, Thomas Law as Ste and Sam Jackson as Jamie.
They will be joined by Gerard McCarthy as Tony, Vanessa Babirye as Leah and Rob Ellis and Natalie Law.
Described as a "glorious urban love story", the play tells the story of teenager Jamie’s relationship with classmate and neighbour, Ste. Together the two boys find comedy, warmth and the music of Mama Cass through their loud-mouthed next door neighbour, Leah, along with Jamie's mum, Sandra (the local barmaid) and her neo-hippy boyfriend, Tony.
The production begins a UK tour in Canterbury on 23 March 2015 before travelling to Birmingham, Manchester, Guildford, Nottingham, Northampton, Leicester, Cardiff and Brighton.
