Broadway alum Denise Van Outen’s new one-woman musical play, Some Girl I Used to Know, which she co-wrote with Terry Ronald, will play London’s Arts Theatre this summer. Directed by Michael Howcroft, the production will run August 22 through September 13.
Stephanie Canworth has it all; a successful career, supportive husband and she’s a media darling. But it takes just one Facebook poke from a former love and the memories come flooding back. Is this really the life she wants? Songs from the 80s and 90s accompany Stephanie’s journey down memory lane, with Van Outen performing cover versions of songs by artists including Soft Cell and Culture Club, as well as the title song which has been specially written for the show by Steve Anderson and Terry Ronald.
Van Outen’s appeared on Broadway in Chicago. Her West End credits include Tell Me on a Sunday, Rent: Remixed and Legally Blonde, and her television roles include Mary in Hotel Babylon, Michaela in The Empress’ New Clothes, Leigh Jackson in two series of Babes in the Wood and Kim Blakeney in two series of Where the Heart Is.
The production is designed by Morgan Large, with lighting by Joshua Carr, sound by David Gregory and musical supervision by Anderson.
