New London concert staging of The Witches of Eastwick

A concert staging production of The Witches of Eastwick will run in the West End for one night only on 20th  June at the Sondheim starring  Giles Terera (Hamilton and Avenue Q original cast,Rent) as Darryl Van Horne. Further all star casting is to be revealed.

Maria Friedman (who starred in the original production of the show, will direct the concert staging of John Dempsey and Dana P Rowe's piece, with musical staging by Stephen Mear.

The Witches of Eastwick tells the tale of the people of the little town of Eastwick. It is a town where everyone knows everything about everyone else, and it is presided over by the indomitable Felicia Gabriel. Bored with their small town lives, three women - Alexandra (Alex), Sukie, and Jane--share a desire for "all manner of man in one man" to provide excitement and variety. That man arrives, literally in a flash, in the devil-like form of Darryl Van Horne. Darryl seduces the women and teaches them powers, which they never knew they had.

 Friedman commented: "I'm so incredibly excited to be revisiting Eastwick after all these years. To be reunited with the fantastic Stephen Mear and to have the opportunity to bring this beloved musical back to London, and at the simply stunning Sondheim Theatre, for one night only is an absolute thrill and I can't wait to get started."

 Tickets are on generaƱ sale from 10.00 amThursday 17 March.
