A new version of the Burt Bacharach-Steven Sater musical Some Lovers has just debuted in London, playing a limited run through September 3.
Inspired by The Gift of the Magi, the new musical charts the emotional journey of a couple (Molly and Ben) at two different stages of their lives. The past and present begin to blur as an unforgettable melody (in true Bacharach style) brings them back to their younger selves.
Watch the just-released highlights video above.
Some Lovers stars Ben Richards (The Bodyguard, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) and Gemma Wardle (Betty Blue Eyes, Les Misérables) as the adult versions of Ben and Molly, respectively, with Aaron Kavanagh and Jenna Innes as their younger counterparts.
The London premiere is presented as part of the 2017 From Page to Stage summer festival at The Other Palace Theatre.
