Son Of A Preacher Man is a new musical featuring the soulful music of pop icon Dusty Springfield will tour the UK from September 2017.
Three broken hearts, one Soho hang-out, and the only man who could ever help them…
Welcome to the Preacher Man, the swinging 1960s Soho joint where the kids danced the night away to the latest crazes and dared to dream of love, while the legendary owner, The Preacher Man himself, dispensed advice to cure the loneliest of hearts.
Only, that was a long time ago and all that remains are the memories, the stories and the myths. Until now, that is, when three random strangers, generations apart but all in need of help with their hopeless love lives, are inexplicably drawn to the site of the original venue. The Preacher Man is long gone, but his son, with help from the wonderful Cappuccino Sisters, might just find it in himself to channel the spirit of The Preacher Man and once more give these three lovesick strangers the look of love.
Featuring the greatest hits of Dusty Springfield, including “The Look Of Love”, “I Only Want To Be With You”, “Spooky” and of course, the classic “Son Of A Preacher Man”.
Son Of A Preacher Man has a book by Warner Brown and will be directed and choreographed by Craig Revel Horwood. Set and costume design by Morgan Large, Musical supervision and arrangements by Paul Herbert, Lighting design by Richard G Jones, Sound design by Richard Brooker and Associate director and choreographer David James Hulston.
