Miss Nightingale - 2018 - West End

£26 - £71

‘A BLITZY ROMANCE OF GIN, GENTS, GARTER BELTS AND TERRIFIC SONGS!’ The Times

An intimate underground cabaret club opens in the heart of London. A saucy new star shines under the spotlight. Two men struggle to bring their illicit love out of the shadows. The war-torn capital has never been so revealing!

Welcome to the Glitz of the Blitz; where showgirls, secrets and scandal abound. A world where aristocrats jostle with black-market spivs, songwriters take to the streets and nothing is quite as it seems.

Maggie Brown, an aspiring singer and her best friend George Nowodny, a songwriter and Jewish refugee, perform a dazzling act at the newest night club in town, owned by wealthy socialite and RAF war-hero, Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe. Maggie’s beau Tom Connor, paves the way for the sexy and charismatic ‘Miss Nightingale’ to be born, and the musical duo quickly find themselves with a West-End hit! However, what the leading lady doesn’t know, is that George and Sir Frank are hiding a secret and as Miss Nightingale’s success grows, so does a forbidden love between the two men!

Miss Nightingale, the brand-new British musical, receives its West-End premiere at The Theatre at the Hippodrome Casino following five sold-out UK tours and a headline season at The Vaults in 2017. Having been hailed as one of the Guardian’s Top 50 must-sees, now is your chance to experience the show-stopping 1942 set musical, where gay glamour, vintage sounds and spunky Blitz spirit are brought sensationally to life.

Immerse yourself in the wartime world of Miss Nightingale- you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll want to come back for more. Book cabaret style seating now for an unrivalled West End experience unlike any other.

Miss Nightingale manages to portray both the delicious naughtiness of 1940s wartime entertainment and the difficult and heart-breaking reality the performers lived off the stage equally well. Matthew Bugg's original musical has had a long journey to its current run at the Hippodrome Casino. This lovely piece produced by the husband-and-husband duo of the company Mr Buggs Presents offers something you don't find in the West End often enough: a beautiful gay love story set to charming music.
