The third musical at The Garden Theatre at The Eagle has been announced as Next Thing You Know, directed by Robert McWhir, and starring Amelia Atherton, Bessy Ewa, Calum Henderson and Nathan Shaw.
Next Thing You Know, hailed by The New York Times as “‘Rent’ for this generation”, follows the story of four New Yorkers as they laugh, love and drink their way through the big questions that face all young dreamers who wake up in the city that never sleeps:
Does marrying a really nice guy mean you’re settling down or just settling?
Does taking a 9-to-5 equal giving up or growing up?
Does a decade in the city break you down or break you in?
Next Thing You Know, Book by Ryan Cunningham and Music and Lyrics by Joshua Salzman, looks at a time in life where one day you wake up, and instead of a hangover, you have a job. Instead of a fling, you have a live-in girlfriend. And instead of naïve dreams, you have reality.
Next Thing You Know will be the third musical following the critically acclaimed Fanny and Stella and Pippin at the new open-air Garden Theatre at The Eagle, 349 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall, London, SE11 5QY.
It will run from Tuesday 20 October – Saturday 31 October. Tickets are on sale here.
