|Gerschwin Gets A Going Over
- The Piccadilly poaches My One and Only
MY ONE AND ONLY comes to the Piccadilly theatre from February 2002. Olivier award-winner Janie Dee stars in the Tony award-winning romantic musical as it transfers from the Chichester Festival Theatre.
Dee stars as the lovely Edith Herbert in the role made famous by Twiggy. Dee's on-stage partner is Tim Flavin, last seen in Gerschwin's Crazy For You. Flavin plays the eccentric captain Billy Buck, whose dreams to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean crash to a halt when he lays eyes on Herbert.
A cast of 24 sing and dance their way through the UK debut of Gershwin's score. Judging by the sell-out success of the show when it hit Broadway back in 1983, songs like S'Wonderful and Nice Work if You Can Get It well deserve their names.
