On Saturday 2nd January the Menier Chocolate Factory production of La Cage Aux Folles starring Douglas Hodge closes at the Playhouse Theatre and transfers to Broadway where Kelsey Grammer (Frasier) joins the cast.

Dreamboats & Petticoats takes its place opening at the Playhouse Theatre on Wednesday 6th January. This show features some of the greatest rock and roll numbers from the 60s and was written by Laurence Marks & Maurice Gran (of Goodnight Sweetheart, New Statesman and Birds of a Feather fame).  It has already been in the West End and is returning following a successful UK tour.
