Grammy Award winning Sheena Easton will make her West End debut next year in 42nd Street at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane. 42nd Street is to open with previews from Monday 20th March and Sheena Easton will play the iconic role of ‘Dorothy Brock’ and will be joined by Tom Lister in the role of ‘Julian Marsh’ and Clare Halse in the role of ‘Peggy Sawyer’.
42nd STREET is the song and dance, American dream fable of Broadway and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as ‘We’re In The Money’, ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘Shuffle Off To Buffalo’, ‘Dames’, ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’, and ‘42nd Street’.
Sheen Easton remains the only artist in history to have top five records on five major Billboard charts, while Tom Lister played ‘Carl King’ in Emmerdale for 8 years and has recently been starring as ‘Wild Bill Hickok’ in the UK Tour of Calamity Jane.
The London production will be directed by the show’s co-author Mark Bramble (whose other hit shows include Barnum, Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers The Grand Tour) and director of many award-winning previous productions of 42nd Street on Broadway and around the world.
42nd Street arrives in London with an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50, ready to explode on to the West End’s biggest stage. The confirmed cast are:
Jasna Ivir, who will play ‘Maggie Jones’, Norman Bowman as ‘Pat Denning’, Stuart Neal as ‘Billy Lawlor’, Graeme Henderson as ‘Andy Lee’, Christopher Howell as ‘Bert Barry’, Bruce Montague as ‘Abner Dillon’, Mark McKerracher as ‘Mac/Doc/Thug’ and Emma Caffrey as ‘Annie’.
