First Look at McQueen at the Haymarket

Last Updated on 25th February 2016

Following its success at the St James Theatre, McQueen opens tonight at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season until 7 November 2015.

McQueen is a journey into the visionary imagination and dream world of Alexander McQueen, fashion’s greatest contemporary artist.  Set on a single London night, it is more than a bio-play. It is stepping into the fairy story landscape of McQueen’s mind, the landscape seen in his immortal shows, where with a dress an urchin can become an Amazon, where beauty might just help us survive the night.  A girl has watched McQueen’s Mayfair house for eleven consecutive days. Tonight she climbs down from her watching tree and breaks into his house, to steal a dress, to become someone special. He catches her, but, instead of calling the police, they embark together on a journey through London and into his heart.

McQueen features Stephen Wight in the title role with Carly Bawden playing Dahlia, Tracy-Ann Oberman as Isabella Blow and Laura Rees as Arabella.

Michael Bertenshaw will be joining the cast as Mr Hitchcock. Also in the cast will be Harry Alexander, Sophie Apollonia, Amber Doyle, George Hill, Eloise Hymas, Amelia Jackson, Rachel Louisa Maybank, Jessica Buckby and Andrei Teodor Iliescu.
