Michelle Ryan cast as Sally Bowles in Cabaret at Savoy
Michelle Ryan will make her West End musical debut as 'Sally Bowles' in Cabaret, which opens at the Savoy Theatre 9 Oct 2012, following previews from 3 Oct - booking to 19 Jan 2013.
Michelle Ryan played Zoe Slater in Eastenders, for five years to 2005; and in 2007, NBC producers cast her in the title role in the re-imagining of cult US TV show The Bionic Woman.
As previously announced the show will also feature Will Young, making his West End stage debut as the Emcee.
Further casting to be announced!
Directed by Rufus Norris, choreography by Javier De Frutos. Produced by Bill Kenwright.
The production turns Weimar Berlin of 1931 into a sassy, sizzling haven of decadence. And at its dark heart are the notorious Emcee and sassy Sally Bowles, who perform nightly at the infamous Kit Kat Klub. Songs include ‘Money Makes The World Go Round’, ‘Two Ladies’ ‘Maybe This Time’ and ‘Cabaret’.
**CABARET will play in September at The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, Theatre Royal Nottingham, Norwich Theatre Royal and The Lowry in Salford Quays directly prior to the West End.
