Molly Wobbly for London run
Date Posted: 31/12/14
The cult musical Molly Wobbly is to receive a staging at the Leicester Square Theatre in London, with the three Little Happening shopkeepers Margaret, Ruth and Jemma set to entertain audiences in a tale of cheeky characters, catchy songs and outrageous humour.
Setting up shop at the venue from January 27th until March 14th, Molly Wobbly explores the lives of three women trapped in loveless marriages with failing businesses who are aided by a mysterious stranger - Molly Wobbly.
Written by Paul Boyd, the show originally premiered in 2011 as a staged concert at Belfast's Lyric Theatre, but rose to prominence after a successful run in Edinburgh as part of the 2012 Fringe Festival.
2014 saw it staged once again in concert form at the Phoenix Artist Club, but it's now set for a proper fully-staged run that will see a number of established West End stars take part.
Among the cast members are Cassie Compton, whose previous credits include Nessarose in Wicked, Elizabeth in Dirty Dancing and Eponine in Les Miserables. She will join Over The Rainbow semi-finalist Stephanie Fearon along with Mamma Mia alumni Jane Milligan.
Other cast members include Conleth Kane, Christopher Finn, Ashley Knight, Alan Richardson and Russell Morton.
Writer Paul Boyd, who will also direct the show, is an established composer and writer of musical theatre, with no less than 21 successful shows under his belt. Some of these have gone on to be produced around the world, including the much-loved Hansel & Gretel.
With seats for Molly Wobbly set to sell out quickly for this strict seven-week run, theatrical enthusiasts are advised to snap up their seats quickly or risk missing out on the fun.
