Connie Fisher to Star in Wonderful Town at Lowry

Connie Fisher left the Sound of Music tour in January.  She is taking some time out from theatre at the moment but it has just been announced she will  lead the cast as Ruth Sherwood in Leonard Bernstein's Wonderful Town at the Lowry in Salford from 31st March-14th April 2012.

Wonderful Town is the story of sisters Ruth and Eileen Sherwood, who travel to New York City from Columbus, Ohio in search of love and fortune. My Sister Eileen is the collection of short stories on which the play and musical are based. They are about Ruth's memories of growing up with her sister.

This will be a joint production between the Manchester Royal Exchange, the Halle orchestra and the Lowry. Braham Murray will be directing and the Halle will be conducted by Sir Mark Elder. The production is due to run for two weeks and may subsequently tour.
