Only one week after announcing a 4 month extension Simply Heavenly, has now posted closing notices for 19 Feb 2005 at the Trafalgar Studios.

BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, " I enjoyed the piece even more than when I saw it at the Young Vic last year." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "The warmest, most touching and vibrantly performed musical on the London stage."

This musical comedy has book and lyrics by Langston Hughes and music by David Martin. It is directed by Josette Bushell-Mingo, designed by Rob Howell, lighting by Paul Anderson, choreography by Paul J Medford and sound by Nick Lidster.
