Gangsters, gamblers, evangelists and showgirls inhabit this musical fable of Broadway which features the much loved songs: Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat, I’ve Never Been in Love Before and Adelaide’s Lament (A Person Can Develop a Cold).

Nathan Detroit (Adam Murphy) is the proprietor of the ‘oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York’ and the cabaret singer, Miss Adelaide (Chelsea Plumley) is his long suffering fiancée.
Showered with Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier and Helpmann Awards since its debut, this new staging will be directed by Gale Edwards (Chess, Gypsy), Musical Director is the distinguished Guy Simpson (Gypsy), Choreographer is Nathan M. Wright (Rocky Horror Show, Sochi Winter Olympics, Avenue Q) with costumes by Academy Award winner Tim Chappel, scenery by Shaun Gurton and lighting by Paul Jackson.
