The producers of the forthcoming West End production of the Broadway musical [title of show] are pleased to confirm that the show is on track to open in 2013, adding that all members of the original Broadway cast (Hunter Bell, Susan Blackwell, Heidi Blickentaff, Jeff Bowen, and Larry Pressgrove), together with the director and choreographer who helmed the show's 2008 Broadway run (Michael Berresse) have all confirmed their intention to reprise their roles for the London run subject to final scheduling.
On the topic, the show's book writer Hunter Bell said "If the stars align and schedules work out, we have our fingers crossed for the original Broadway company to take the West End by storm." Bell was nominated for a Tony Award for his book of [title of show], and won an Obie award for the same book in 2006, along with colleagues Bowen (for music and lyrics) and Berresse (for direction). Producer Oliver Southgate added that "Everybody is working excruciatingly hard, with patience and faith that this is a thing that can and will happen, and it's now paying off.
Whilst our persistence to use this cast and director has made it difficult to open as soon as we might have liked, it's that integrity that means we now have the thrilling opportunity to reunite these incredible creative minds, and ensure that [title of show] in London is the most authentic, resonant, and high-quality production it can be. West End audiences will certainly be rewarded for their patience."
An announcement of dates and ticket information for [title of show] in the West End is expected shortly
