2013 IN PREVIEW: West End Stars' Theatre Tips, Part One!
We asked some of our favourite theatre stars for their top theatre tickets of 2013 - here's what they recommend you should go and see!
Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (Gypsy, Flashdance)
I'm most looking forward to seeing The Book of Mormon - I don't know too much about the show or listened to any of the music because I don't want to get a forced idea on what to expect. I'm also looking forward to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I can't imagine there are any theatregoers who aren't. I cant wait to see their ideas and what Sam Mendes does with the show - it's one of the favourites from my childhood so I will be bursting to see it.
I've heard how Once was beautifully put on in New York and with the music being very emotional and touching I know this show will be hot property, especially as a casting opportunity as I'm sure practically everyone and their wife will want to be cast in the show.
But more than any other show coming into town I can't wait to see A Chorus Line! I'm very excited to be a part of the company playing a great role in DiAna Morales. It's a classic from the 70s which hasn't been shown in London's West End for 37 years and I am nothing but excited for the show to be up and running after its long break!
Victoria plays Diana in A Chorus Line at the Palladium from February.
