A Tale of Two Cities announced on Charles Dickens' 200th birthday

A new musical version of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities will open at London's Charing Cross theatre, it has been announced.

The news came on the 200th anniversary of the famous writer's birthday.

The production, which plays at the off-West End venue from Thursday April 5th until Saturday May 12th, will tell the story of a man who makes the ultimate sacrifice for love in Paris and London.

Paul Nicholas will direct the musical, and he is known to fans of London theatre breaks for his work on Grease, Saturday Night Fever and Ain't Misbehavin.

He has also appeared on the stage in shows like Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar.

While the cast has yet to be named for A Tale of Two Cities, it has been revealed that music will come from David Pomeranz, with lyrics from Steven David Horwich.

Currently, Charing Cross theatre is showing Pajama Men – In the Middle of No One, which runs until Saturday March 3rd.
