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....
Jerry's Girls transfers to the Jermyn Street from 12 May
Aria Entertainment and Guy James's revival of Jerry's Girls, created by Jerry Herman and Larry Alford will transfer to the Jermyn Street Theatre in central London, following a run at the St James Studio.
It will play a three-week run, from 12 to 31 May 2015, with an official opening on 15 May 2015, and will once again be directed by Kate Golledge and choreographed by Matthew Cole.
Ria Jones and Sarah-Louise Young will reprise their roles from the St James run and will be joined by Emma Barton.
The musical revue celebrates the works of American composer and lyricist Jerry Herman and features songs from classic musicals including 'Hello Dolly!', 'Mame', and 'La Cage Aux Folles', celebrating Herman’s special gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of the great American musical.
Jerry's Girls was created in 1981 and is being revived thirty years 30 after it opened on Broadway. The show first began as a modest cabaret presentation at Onstage, a nightclub located in New York’s theatre district in midtown-Manhattan. A full-scale production followed in 1985, at the St. James Theatre on Broadway. This featured an all-star cast including Chita Rivera, who went on to receive a Tony-Award nomination for her performance.
