Victor returns to Chicago
A number of cast changes will take place in the West End show Chicago from June 2nd, according to reports.
Anna Jane Casey will play Velma Kelly, one of the musical's lead roles, while Victor McGuire and Sue Kelvin will also return as Amos Hart and Mama Morton.
It has already been announced that Suzanne Shaw, former pop star and winner of TV show Dancing on Ice, will play the character of Roxie Hart from June 2nd.
Chicago opened at the Adelphi Theatre in 1997 and is now taking bookings at the Cambridge Theatre until August 2009.
In other London theatre news, the Phantom of the Opera has had its booking period extended by six months and tickets are now on sale for dates up to April 25th 2009.
On May 5th, 6th and 7th, the show was closed to allow the installation of a new digital sound system, which boasts a new surround sound setup consisting of 120 speakers positioned throughout the auditorium.
The full cast has been announced for Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's at Theatre Royal Plymouth this summer.
Matt Barber (Atticus Aldridge in Downton Abbey) will play Fred and Victor McGuire (the sit-coms Trollied and Bread) will play Joe Bell.
They will be joined by Robert Calvert as Doc, Naomi Cranston as Mag, Charlie De Melo as Jose, Tim Frances as Rusty Trawler/Editor at 21, Andrew Joshi as Yunioshi, Melanie La Barrie as Mme Spanella, and Sevan Stephan as OJ Berman/Dr Goldman, with Katy Allen and Andy Watkins.
As previously announced, Pixie Lott will star as Holly Golightly.
Truman Capote's classic novella has been adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize-winning Finalist and Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out, Three Days of Rain), and contains memorable songs from the era as well as original music by Grant Olding (One Man, Two Guvnors, RSC's Don Quixote).
Based on Truman Capote's beloved masterwork, Breakfast at Tiffany's is set in New York in 1943. Fred, a young writer from Louisiana, meets Holly Golightly, a charming, vivacious and utterly elusive good-time girl.
Everyone falls in love with Holly – including Fred. However Fred is poor, and Holly's other suitors include a playboy millionaire and the future president of Brazil.
As war rages on in Europe, Holly begins to fall in love with Fred – just as her past catches up with her.
Breakfast at Tiffany's is at Theatre Royal Plymouth from June 20 to 25, 2016. Tickets are priced at £14.70 and can be booked online at www.theatreroyal.com or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222.
