USHERS: The Front of House Musical Transfers to the Charing Cross Theatre Tonight
USHERS: The Front of House Musical will now get a month-long West End residency as the main show at Charing Cross Theatre from tonight, 13 May to Saturday 7 June. Press night is Wednesday 14 May at 8.00pm.
Set in the West End theatre hosting Oops! I Did It Again, The Britney Spears Musical, USHERS: The Front of House Musical follows a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre - the front of house staff. It portrays the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream...including a three-year workplace romance that is on the rocks, an untrained newbie working her first shift and the amorous manager who is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?
USHERS: The Front of House Musical has big, bold company numbers, Fosse-like ice cream tray choreography and a script with heart, soul and an ice-bucket full of laughs.
USHERS: The Front of House Musical brings together the writing talents of Yiannis Koutsakos (music & lyrics), James Oban (lyrics) - @Westendproducer's Search for A Twitter Composer (#SFATC) finalists - and BBC comedy actor James Rottger (book). Described by them as Front of House's answer to A Chorus Line, it marks the trio's musical theatre writing debut.
Produced by Kouban Productions Ltd, Steven M Levy & Sean Sweeney; Directed by Andrew Whyment; Musical Director Dean Austin; Designer Amy Jobs; Choreographer Russell Smith; Associate Choreographer Gemma Fuller; and Casting Director Benjamin Newsome.
