Opening Night

★★★★ 'Captivating. Sheridan Smith shakes up musical theatre' The Guardian

BAFTA and two-time Olivier® award-winner Sheridan Smith delivers a performance like never before in this new musical about a theatre company barrelling towards their big opening night.   

 

Based on John Cassavetes' legendary 1970s film, the action centres around world-famous actress Myrtle Gordon who, while struggling with her starring role, is plunged into turmoil when she witnesses a fan being fatally hit by a car.  Deeply affected by the incident, the cast and crew rally around Myrtle as she battles her inner demons, confronts her past, and contemplates her future.


★★★★ 'Sheridan Smith is unstoppable - I was simply in awe of her. Extraordinary' Daily Mail

 

Opening Night features music and lyrics by Rufus Wainwright, one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, alongside book and direction by Tony® and Olivier ® award-winner Ivo Van Hove.

 

‘Rufus Wainwright’s music reaches new heights’ Independent

 

The cast also includes Hadley Fraser (The Lehman Trilogy), Shira Haas (Unorthodox), Nicola Hughes (Chicago), Amy Lennox (Cabaret), John Marquez (Pygmalion), and Benjamin Walker (American Psycho)

★★★★ 'Sheridan Smith is superb. There is truly nothing else like it' Time Out
