BRIT Award winning singer Nicola Roberts makes her stage debut in Josie Rourke’s critically acclaimed and Olivier Award winning production of City of Angels.
Nicola, former Girls Aloud member, takes on the role of Avril/Mallory in the West End production joining the already announced Hadley Fraser (Les Misérables, Young Frankenstein), Rosalie Craig (Company), Rebecca Trehearn (Showboat) and Emmy and Grammy Award nominee Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives), making her West End debut.
Nicola Roberts said: “I am delighted that Josie and the production have chosen me to be Mallory for City of Angels. To make my acting debut in this show and to work with such a fantastic company of actors and Josie Rourke is a dream come true for me.”
Josie Rourke, Director of City of Angels said: “It’s exciting to add another dynamite voice, and stellar presence to this revival of City of Angels. Nicola is an exceptional talent, who brings wit and intelligence to the role and the production. Although she’s no stranger to the stage, I’m honoured to be the director for her West-End debut.”
Away from her musical career Nicola commits a lot of time to helping charities working with underprivileged children around the UK. She is an ambassador for Barnardo’s Young Supporters Charity and visits the children at their schools and events regularly.
City of Angels will play at the Garrick Theatre for a limited season, with previews from Thursday 5 March 2020, reuniting the production’s entire creative team.
