Samantha Barks and Arthur Darvill will star in the UK premiere of the Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas.
Samantha Barks and Arthur Darvill will lead the cast in a concert performance of Honeymoon in Vegas at the London Palladium.
Based on the 1992 film starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicholas Cage, Honeymoon in Vegas tells the story of mild-mannered Jack, who haunted by the fear of a promise to his dying mother never to get married, avoids proposing to his new girlfriend Betsy. He finally summons the nerve and takes Betsy to Las Vegas only to have his plans compromised by a dashing gambler with an eye for luxury and Jack’s new fiancée.
The thirty strong London Musical Theatre Orchestra will perform the musical, conducted by Jason Robert Brown who composed the piece.
Barks made her West End debut as Éponine in Les Miserables, and recently appeared in The Last Five Years alongside Jonathan Bailey, which was written by Brown.
Arthur Darvill is best known for playing one of Doctor Who’s companions in the BBC TV series, and has appeared on stage in Once, Treasure Island and Our Boys.
Honeymoon in Vegas the Musical in Concert will play on Sunday 12 March 2017 at the London Palladium.
