Craig Revel Horwood to direct new musical Son of a Preacher Man featuring hits of Dusty Springfield

Craig Revel Horwood is to  direct a tour of Warner Brown's new musical Son Of A Preacher Man:
Louise Redknapp (who is keen to do something in musical theatre and who reached the final of the last series of Strictly Come Dancing on which Revel Horwood was a judge) is being considered for a lead role in a funny and sweetly touching new musical featuring the greatest hits of Dusty Springfield.  

It  looks  at the lives of three broken hearted strangers who are seeking the man who can heal them. The Preacher Man, is a swinging 1960s Soho joint where the kids danced the night away to the latest crazes and dared to dream of love, while the legendary owner, The Preacher Man himself, dispensed advice to cure the loneliest of hearts. Producer John Sachs said the show will use a lot of songs associated with Dusty Springfield, including the title track, which was featured on the classic 1968 Dusty In Memphis album, though it's not about her at all.

Son Of A Preacher Man  will embark on an autumn tour starting at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley from September 4 and is currently due to visit  venues including Manchester, York, Stoke, Oxford and WImbledon.
