Cast for Sondheim’s Passion at Donmar Warehouse

The full cast has just been announced for the main production of the Sondheim at 80 celebrations at the Donmar Warehouse

The new production of his 1994 musical Passion (which originally starred Michael Ball and Maria Friedman) will reunite Argentine actress Elena Roger and director Jamie Lloyd after their success with Piaf.

Other cast members are Scarlett Strallen and David Thaxton plus an all-male ensemble of: Simon Bailey, David Birrell, Allan Corduner, Ross Dawes, Iwan Lewis, Tim Morgan and Haydn Oakley.

I saw the original version of this musical which examines the power of love in a haunting story of desire, sacrifice and redemption and certainly intend to see this version which in my opinion has a stronger cast.

It runs at the Donmar from 21st September to 27th November 2010 (previews from 10th September).
