I beg your pardon, ladies and gents, but we think you're going to enjoy this one! Ushers: The Front of House Musical is transferring to London's Charing Cross Theatre for a limited engagement, following its celebrated premiere at The Hope Theatre in Islington. Directed by Max Reynolds, the uproarious musical comedy will begin performances March 7 at the West End theater. Opening night is set for March 12 and Ushers will run through April 19.
Starring Ralph Bogard, Ross Mcneill and Liam Ross-Mills, Ushers is set in a West End theater and follows a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theater—the front of house staff! A preview performance of a new jukebox musical is due to take place, a three-year workplace romance is on the rocks, an untrained newbie is working her first shift and the manager is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?
Ushers features music by Yiannis Koutsakos, lyrics by James Oban and Koutsakos, and a book by James Rottger. The production also includes additional lyrics by James Rottger, choreography by Russell Smith and musical direction by Michael Riley.
