Ambassador Theatre Group, Gavin Kalin Productions, Glass Half Full Productions and Rupert Gavin, in association with Hampstead Theatre, have announced that the critically-acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre production of CAROLINE, OR CHANGE will transfer to London’s Playhouse Theatre from 20 November 2018 to 9 February 2019.
Winner of the 2007 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, the West End transfer of Tony Kushner‘s playful and deeply moving musical, set to a soaring score from Jeanine Tesori, will again be directed by Michael Longhurst, and see star Sharon D. Clarke reprise her virtuoso central performance as Caroline Thibodeaux.
