First Look at Vanities the Musical at Trafalgar Studios 2

"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?"
Check out the production photos from the show, taken by Pamela Raith.
Vanities runs at Trafalgar Square Theatre until 1 October 2016.
