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....
New musical Miss Nightingale set to open in London
New British musical Miss Nightingale is set to open in London in March following a successful run at the Vaults last year.
Written by Matthew Bugg, Miss Nightingale is set in an underground cabaret club in wartime London. Aspiring singer Maggie Brown and her songwriter George Nowodny take to the stage to perform at the nightclub which is owned by an RAF war hero. With the help of an admirer, Maggie and George find themselves with a hit West End musical, but secrets and scandal throw a few forks in the road along the way.
Miss Nightingale will transform the intimate 160-seat theatre at the Hippodrome Casino into a World War Two cabaret club, complete with themed food and drink.
Lauren Chinery leads the cast in the title role, with Oliver Mawdsley (Frank), Matthew Floyd Jones (George), Adam Langstaff (Tom), Tobias Oliver (Clifford) and the show’s writer Bugg (Harry).
The production has designs by Carla Goodman, lighting by Craig Garratt, original lighting designs by David Phillips and sound by Danny Kissane.
Miss Nightingale Tickets are on sale now.
