News   My One and Only, with Janie Dee, Goes to West End in February 2002

The romantic musical, My One and Only, is to transfer to the West End in February 2002.

Heading the cast will be double Olivier Award-winner Janie Dee, who won rave reviews with her performance as an android in Alan Ayckbourn's Comic Potential at the Vaudeville, and, subsequently, Off-Broadway.

She will be joined by Crazy For You's Tim Flavin as Captain Billy Buck Chandler, a daredevil aviator who falls for Dee's English Channel swimmer, Edythe Herbert.

Loveday Ingram, Associate Director at the Chichester Festival Theatre (where the show recently finished a sell-out season) will direct Dee, Flavin and a cast of 24 as they sing their way through Gershwin greats such as "'S'Wonderful," "Funny Face" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It." The much-praised choreography is by Craig Revel-Horwood.

The venue will be confirmed at a later date.
