Dessa Rose to Get European Premiere in London

Dessa Rose, a musical based on Sherley Anne Williams’ book about the racial divide in southern America during the 19th century, will be coming to London for its European premiere.

From Thursday July 31st until Saturday August 30th, the production will be showing at Trafalgar Studios, with previews taking place from Tuesday July 29th. 

Audiences were first able to enjoy Dessa Rose on the other side of the Atlantic in New York all the way back in 2005, when it was nominated for many prestigious awards.

Now, acclaimed director Andrew Keates has decided to bring it to the British stage, commenting: “In our current political climate, I can think of no better time to tell this visceral story of how we can learn from those that are different to us.”

Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens created the music and lyrics that turned Williams’ moving book into a stage musical, with the pair having previously found success with shows such as Ragtime and Seussical.

Anyone heading to London on a theatre break should consider booking tickets.
