Big new West End musical Made in Dagenham opened last night (Wednesday 4 November 2014) at the Adelphi Theatre.

Based on the hit British film, Rupert Goold directs Gemma Arterton as Rita O’Grady, fighting for equal pay for women in this true story about the women of the Ford car factory in Dagenham.

Gemma Arterton is joined by Adrian Der Gregorian as her husband Eddie, Isla Blair as Conni, David Cardy as Monty and Sophie Stanton as Beryl.

The show is penned by Richard Bean (book), David Arnold (music) and Richard Thomas (lyrics).

The designs by Bunny Christie are much praised by the critics in a show that divides opinion across the national press, ranging from an acclaimed four stars by the Indepdenent, to a rather more reserved 2 stars by the Guardian.

Made in Dagenham opens this Wednesday (5 November 2014) at the Adelphi Theatre in London.

The much-anticipated musical – possibly the biggest launch of the Autumn season in the West End – is directed by award-winning Almeida Theatre artistic director Rupert Goold (King Charles III, Enron, American Psycho) and created by a very accomplished team including book by Richard Bean (Great Britain, One Man, Two Guvnors), music by David Arnold (James Bond movies) and lyrics by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera).

The show is based on the hit British movie that starred Sally Hawkins, which in turn is based on the true story of a band of women working for Ford’s Dagenham car plant in the Sixties, who strike over equal pay and change the course of working conditions for women in Britain.

A very strong cast is led by film and stage actress Gemma Arterton (The Voices, Tamara Drewe, Quantum of Solace, St Trinian’s) as Rita, alongside Adrian der Gregorian (Mr Burns, Rocky Horror Show) as Eddie, veteran stage actress Isla Blair (The History Boys) as Connie, David Cardy (Dreamboats and Petticoats) as Monty and Sophie Stanton (EastEnders, Beautiful Thing) as Beryl.

They are joined by Gareth Snook, Steve Furst, Mark Hadfield, Sophie-Louise Dann and Naomi Frederick. Also Sophie Stanton, Heather Craney, Sophie Isaacs, Julius D’Silva, Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Thomas Aldridge, Kate Coysten, Christopher Howell, Scott Garnham, Ian Jervis, Paul Kemble, Emma Lindars, Jo Napthine, Tracey Penn, Gemma Salter, Rachel Spurrell, Emily Squibb, Karli Vale and Rene Zagger.

Baz Bamigboye in the Daily Mail today (19 September 2014), said that “director Rupert Goold has cast the show with sublime actors” – and we couldn’t agree more.

“I think Gemma will be doing big musicals in 20 to 30 years’ time” Rupert Goold

The lead role of Rita (played by Sally Hawkins in the film version) will be played by British movie and stage actress Gemma Arterton (The Voices, Tamara Drewe, Quantum of Solace, St Trinian’s), with a strong supporting cast including hot newcomer Adrian der Gregorian (Mr Burns, Rocky Horror Show) as Eddie, veteran stage actress Isla Blair as Connie and Beautiful Thing’s Sophie Stanton.

The show is directed by award-winning director Rupert Goold, who currently has a hit running in the West End with King Charles III at the Wyndham’s Theatre. He said to the Mail that Gemma Arterton is, “so beautiful, and obviously film-starry, but she’s also an accomplished stage actress… I think Gemma will be doing big musicals in 20 to 30 years’ time — and that’s not true of all young actresses.”

The show’s writers include West End man-of-the-moment Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors, Great Britain), with musica by James Bond composer David Arnold and lyrics by Jerry Springer The Opera’s Richard Thomas.

Made in Dagenham launches in London

June 18, 2014 

Big new West End musical Made in Dagenham launched in London this week.

Helmed by Almeida artistic director Rupert Goold, the cast and creative team came together in London to showcase the musical ahead of its 9 October 2014 opening at the Adelphi Theatre.

The star of the show – at the launch and within the show – is Gemma Arterton. Arterton has risen quickly to become a major Hollywood and stage star, and takes on the lead role of Rita O’Grady in the show – played in the movie by Sally Hawkins.

Five songs from the new show were performed at the showcase, and Rupert Goold was in bullish mood, telling the media that his aim was to put British musicals back on the map.

Some of the former striking women who worked at the Ford factory, and were immortalised in British movie Made in Dagenham, were present at the launch.

The creative team behind the show is strong, with a book by One Man, Two Guvnors playwright Richard Bean, music by James Bond composer David Arnold and lyrics by Jerry Springer The Opera’s Richard Thomas.
