The musical will rotate three young actors in the role of the title character, a working class Briton whose dream of becoming a dancer becomes a source of conflict between him and his traditional family. The Victoria Palace Theatre plays host to the production of the new musical which features music by Elton John, lyrics by Lee Hall and direction by Stephen Daldry (who also helmed the original film).
