The potent mix of politics, sex scandals and true love come together in this contemporary musical with an infections score that you’ll be humming long past the stroke of midnight!"
Soho Cinders was first showcased in 2008 and had a gala concert production in 2011. It received its world premiere at London's Soho Theatre in 2012.
