First Look at Vanities the Musical at Trafalgar Studios 2
Vanities the Musical has its London debut this evening as it officially opens at the Trafalgar Square Theatre. Directed and choreographed by Racky Plews it features a book by Jack Heifner and music and lyrics by David Kirshenbaum, and this new production marks the 10th anniversary of the musical and 40th anniversary of the play on which it is based.
Lauren Samuels, Ashleigh Gray and Lizzy Connolly star in this "hilarious and heartfelt story" about three best friends growing up in Dallas at a time when image and style were more important than brains and ambition. "It’s time to go back to 1963 and watch Mary, Kathy and Joanne obsess over their cheerleader routines, choose their sororities, plan their wedding outfits – because even though the President has been shot and America’s on the brink of a war, if the girls just stay popular and don’t lose their looks everything will be okay… right?"

Vanities runs at Trafalgar Square Theatre until 1 October 2016.
