A new London production of the hit Off-Broadway show Forever Plaid, originally performed in 1990 and subsequently seen in the West End in 1993, is to be presented at London's St. James Studio, beginning performances April 5 prior to an official opening April 8.
Directed and staged by Grant Murphy, the cast will be led by Jon Lee, recently seen as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys and previously seen as Marius in Les Miserables in the West End, who is also well known as an original member of the pop band S Club 7.
Also in the cast are Keith Jack (runner-up in BBC's Any Dream Will Do, who has subsequently played the role of Joseph in the U.K. tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Matthew Quinn (Dreamboats and Petticoats in the West End) and Luke Stiffler (a semi-finalist on Britain's Got Talent when he was part of The Kingdom Tenors).
In the show, they play a close-harmony group who perform such songs as "Rags To Riches," "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing," "Catch A Falling Star," "Three Coins In A Fountain" and many more.
The production is presented by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Guy James. It is deigned by Nik Corrall, with musical direction by Anthony James Gabriele and lighting design by Ben Rogers.
