Guest celebrities will appear each night at Wyndham's Theatre in The Play What I Wrote
Having ensured the continued success of Art at Wyndham's Theatre by a judicious blend of celebrity casting, changed every few months, producer David Pugh is using a variation on this theme to add a touch of box office spice to his new show, The Play What I Wrote. According to Pugh, 28 celebrities have already agreed to appear as special guests in the show.
Pugh's new show, written by Sean Foley and Hamish McColl of The Right Size and directed by Kenneth Branagh, is about the much-loved comedians Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise. Celebrity appearances were a regular and popular feature of the duo's television shows, and the use of guest appearances in the production - subtitled A Tight Squeeze for the Pimpernel - is likely to be equally successful in attracting the public.
The Play What I Wrote will replace Art at Wyndham's, previews commence Oct. 19 and the first night will be Nov. 5. Art, meanwhile, transfers to the Whitehall Theatre on Oct. 15.
