Sheffield Crucible's Showboat to open at New London Theatre in April.

Updated 12th February: Gina Beck, Emmanuel Kojo and Rebecca Trehearn, are among the cast who will transfer from Sheffield to the West End in the  musical Show Boat. Many of the company who appeared in the revival at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre over Christmas will be in the show when it begins previews at the New London Theatre on April 9th (with press night on April 25th)

According to Baz in today's Mail the excellent Sheffield Crucible production of Showboat which recently ended its run is close to confirming a transfer to the West End's New London Theatre for an April-January 2017 run, but with a different cast as not everyone is available to make the transfer (for example leading man Michael Xavier is due to be at the London Coliseum starring in Sunset Boulevard at opposite Glenn Close).

Me too. Last time I saw it was when it starred Cleo Laine at the Palladium more years ago than I care to remember!

We saw the Sheffield show at Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Lucky you. I didn't manage to get to Sheffield so am really looking forward to seeing it at the New London. Will publish show/ticket details as soon as I have them
