Bonnie Langford is to join the cast of the spectacular musical 42nd Street at London’s Theatre Royal Druty Lane from 3 September 2018.
Langford will join the cast of 42nd Street playing diva Dorothy Brock until the show’s closure on 5 January 2019 when the theatre will commence previously announced refurbishment.
Bonnie’s career encompasses theatre, television, film and radio both in the UK and America. She made her theatre debut in the West End at the age of seven in Gone with the Wind at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, starred in Gypsy opposite Angela Lansbury which also enjoyed a highly successful run on Broadway, and has made a wealth of appearances across TV and film. Bonnie comes to the cast of 42nd Street straight from her headline-making role as Carmel Kazemi in BBC’s EastEnders.
Bonnie will appear alongside Tom Lister who plays the role of ‘Julian Marsh’, Clare Halse, who plays ‘Peggy Sawyer’ and Ashley Day as ‘Billy Lawlor’. The show includes an all-singing, high-kicking cast of over 50 and some of the greatest songs ever written, such as ‘We’re In The Money’, ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘Shuffle Off To Buffalo’, ‘Dames’, ‘I Only Have Eyes For You’, and ‘42nd Street’.
42nd Street has already been seen by over a million people and recently celebrated its 500th performance.
