Landi Oshinowo and Nicolas Colicos leading the cast of I’m Getting my Act Together and Taking it on the Road
This is the first UK revival of this off-Broadway and West End musical – I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road 35 years after it was first seen at the West End. It’s 1978. Heather Jones is breaking free. No longer content to be a mother, a housewife or celebrity product. Reshaping herself and discovering independence as a ‘new woman’, Heather hits the road with friends to prove that sisters can indeed do it for themselves. This new production promises to lead audiences on a moving and emotionally charged musical journey about love, friendships and new beginnings. Described as a ‘controversial sensation’, I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road marked a watershed moment in the history of musical theatre when it first premiered, challenging gender roles through the exploration of friendships, relationships and the pursuit of personal goals. Now, London audiences will experience a new production of this touching, poignant and hilarious show.
With Book & Lyrics by GRETCHEN CRYER and Music by NANCY FORD the production will be
directed By Matthew Gould with Musical Direction Nick Barstow and design by Matthew Gould and Edward Iliffe with Lighting Design By Mitchell Reeve
Joining Landi Oshinowo (Shrek, Barnum, Sister Act) and Nicolas Colicos (Mamma Mia, Sunset Boulevard, Sister Act, The Bodyguard) will be Rosanna Hyland (Urinetown, Sister Act, Shrek), Kristen Gaetz (42 Street on Broadway, White Christmas US Tour, Crazy for You US Tour), David Gibbons (LSMT), Alice Offley (Teddy, The Secret Rapture) and Rich Craig (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Waterloo).
