Lulu returns to the West End after 30 years to join the cast of 42nd Street, the dazzling and romantic homage to the world of musical theatre in the iconic role of ‘Dorothy Brock’ in this five star production.
Lulu made her acting debut at the age of 16, starring with Sidney Poitier in the unforgettable To Sir With Love – and taking the title song to Number One in the US for five weeks. Since then she has never been away from the spotlight as an actress, singer, song-writer and businesswoman.
Also joining the cast of 42nd Street is Ashley Day as ‘Billy Lawlor’. Ashley performed the role of ‘Jerry Mulligan’ in the recent West End production of An American in Paris.
The role of ‘Julian Marsh’ will continue to be performed by Tom Lister, who played ‘Carl King’ in Emmerdale for 8 years and had recently starred as ‘Wild Bill Hickok’ in the UK Tour of Calamity Jane. Clare Halse, whose performances have been hailed as ‘outstanding’ will continue as ‘Peggy Sawyer’.
42nd Street is playing at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Tickets on sale here.
