Be careful what you wish for!
When three desperate housewives in small town America wish for the man of their dreams, they get more than they bargain for in this bewitching musical comedy returning to the West End for one night only in a thrilling all–star concert.
Based on the John Updike novel and the 1987 Hollywood film about three bored New England witches who conjure up a wicked lover, the musical by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe features a showstopping score including “Make Him Mine”, “Dirty Laundry”, “Dance With the Devil” and “I Wish I May”.
John Partridge (Cabaret, La Cage aux Folles, EastEnders) stars as the devilish Darryl van Horne, alongside Carrie Hope Fletcher, Laura Pitt Pulford and Natasha J Barnes as the titular witches.
Directed by one of the show’s original stars, three-time Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman and with Musical Staging by Chrissie Cartwright, The Witches Of Eastwick promises to be the musical theatre concert event of the year!
