This Autumn, Vanities the musical will have its London debut on the 10th anniversary of the musical and the 40th anniversary of the play.
Vanities is a hilarious and heartfelt story about three best friends growing up in Dallas at a time when image and style were more important than brains and ambition. Through a rich original score that blends girl group harmonies of the 60s and 70s with contemporary musical theatre, Vanities explores how these women’s warped view of the world shaped them for better and worse.
It’s time to go back to 1963 and watch Mary, Kathy and Joanne obsess over their cheerleader routines, choose their sororities, plan their wedding outfits – because even though the President has been shot and America’s on the brink of a war, if the girls just stay popular and don’t lose their looks everything will be okay… right?
Vanities will star Lauren Samuels (Bend It Like Beckham), Ashleigh Gray (Wicked) and Lizzy Connolly (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).
Vanities will feature never before seen material and will be directed and choreographed by Racky Plews. Vanities has a book by Jack Heifner and music and lyrics by David Kirshenbaum.
Vanities will be performed at Trafalgar Studios 2 from 1 September – 1 October 2016.
