Producer Jack Maple, by arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd, has announced a special one-off concert of THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK at the Sondheim Theatre on Monday 20 June 2022.
THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK has a book and lyrics by John Dempsey and music by Dana P. Rowe, based on the novel by John Updike and the Warner Bros. film of the same name.
Three-time Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman (who starred in the original London production) will direct the concert, with musical staging by the show’s original Co-Choreographer, Stephen Mear.
Olivier Award-winner Giles Terera will star as Darryl Van Horne.
This will be the first time the musical has been seen in London since it originally played at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2000, transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2001.
Tickets are on sale from 10am on Thursday 17 March.
Further all-star casting is to be announced.
THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK tells the tale of the people of the little town of Eastwick. It is a town where everyone knows everything about everyone else, and it is presided over by the indomitable Felicia Gabriel. Bored with their small town lives, three women – Alexandra (Alex), Sukie, and Jane–share a desire for “all manner of man in one man” to provide excitement and variety. That man arrives, literally in a flash, in the devil-like form of Darryl Van Horne. Darryl seduces the women and teaches them powers, which they never knew they had.
The Olivier Award-nominated show features a show-stopping score including “Make Him Mine”, “Dirty Laundry”, “Dance With the Devil” and “I Wish I May”.
