Dear World

£42.50, £35.00

The Charing Cross Theatre is delighted to present the British premiere of Jerry Herman's DEAR WORLD, A Musical Fable. The show premiered on Broadway in 1969 starring Angela Lansbury and Milo O'Shea, but this will be the first production ever to be staged outside of the United States.



Set in post-war Paris in 1945, this musical fable of Good versus Evil is a tale for our times, with only a madwoman and her odd collection of acquaintances to save the city from corporate greed.



The cast will be led by Tony Award-winning Betty Buckley as the Countess Aurelia and is directed and choreographed by Gillian Lynne (Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).
