It was around five years ago that I was first approached to be in a new musical, Miss Nightingale, but schedules didn't work out. Then it went on five sold-out UK tours, headlined the Vault Festival in 2017, was voted one of British Theatre's 'Top 100 Musicals of All Time', and is now transferring to the West End...
So I was like, "Erm, hey guys, remember me? I'm free now." And I got the part!
Miss Nightingale at the London Hippodrome
March 21 - May 6 2018
An intimate underground cabaret club opens in the heart of London. A saucy new star shines under the spotlight. Two men struggle to bring their illicit love out of the shadows. [I'm one of those!] The war-torn capital has never been so revealing!
Welcome to the Glitz of the Blitz; where showgirls, secrets and scandal abound. A world where aristocrats jostle with black-market spivs, songwriters take to the streets and nothing is quite as it seems.
Maggie Brown, an aspiring singer and her best friend George Nowodny, a songwriter and Jewish refugee, [that's me] perform a dazzling act at the newest night club in town, owned by wealthy socialite and RAF war-hero, Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe. Maggie’s beau Tom Connor, paves the way for the sexy and charismatic ‘Miss Nightingale’ to be born, and the musical duo quickly find themselves with a West-End hit! However, what the leading lady doesn’t know, is that George and Sir Frank are hiding a secret and as Miss Nightingale’s success grows, so does a forbidden love between the two men! [Naughty.]
Miss Nightingale, the brand-new British musical, receives its West-End premiere at The Theatre at the Hippodrome Casino following five sold-out UK tours and a headline season at The Vaults in 2017. Having been hailed as one of the Guardian’s Top 50 must-sees, now is your chance to experience the show-stopping 1942 set musical, where gay glamour, vintage sounds and spunky Blitz spirit are brought sensationally to life.
Immerse yourself in the wartime world of Miss Nightingale– you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll want to come back for more. Book cabaret style seating now for an unrivalled West End experience unlike any other.
