The St. James Theatre continues with its schedule of bold programming announcing 3 new productions for spring 2016.
The Pianist of Willesden Lane makes it UK premier in January having already wowed audiences in the US. Based on the book The Children of Willesden Lane: Beyond the Kindertransport: A Memoir of Music, Love, and Survival by Mona Golabek and Lee Cohen, Mona Golabek blends theatre and music, to tell her own family story of escape from Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport and survival in London during the Blitz.
Miss Atomic Bomb a new musical will receive its world premiere in March. Miss Atomic Bomb is a satirical tale with a warm glow, set in Nevada in 1952 and inspired by the unlikely confluence of tourism, the mob and the military at the time of the atomic bomb tests of the era.
The spring season concludes with a London revival of the world’s most performed play by a female playwright, My Mother Said I Never Should, a powerful story of love and jealousy between four generations of the same family.
James Albrecht, Creative Director of the St. James Theatre, said “As we embark on our fourth year at the St. James, it is a joy to be fulfilling our objective to present ambitious new plays, musical theatre and revivals of ground-breaking works, from both sides of the Atlantic. In our spring season we bring you absorbing and entertaining tales inspired by true stories and notable for their leading roles for women.”
