Out Of This World - Cole Porter musical premiere
The Ye Olde Rose and Crown pub theatre in Walthamstow, north London, have announced that they will present the London stage premiere of Cole Porter's musical Out of This World from 12 to 30 April 2016, with an official opening on 15 April 2016.
Featuring Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter and a book by Dwight Taylor and Reginald Lawrence, the show opened on Broadway in 1950 where it ran for 157 performances and received its UK Stage Premiere at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2004.
"In this rampant Musical Comedy, the Roman Gods Mercury and Jupiter are in search of some entertainment of the human kind. The focus of their attention is a young bride, Helen and her husband, Art. Mercury joins the two on their trip to Athens, intending to put himself between the blushing newlyweds. While the men are busy chasing Helen, the goddess Juno (Jupiter's wife) is playing games of her own with inept gangster Nikki as her reluctant sidekick."
The production will be directed by Randy Smartnick with Musical Direction and orchestrations by Aaron Clingham and choreography by Kate McPhee. It is produced by Andrew Yon on behalf of All Star Productions.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
