New musical Sylvia at The Old Vic theatre starring Beverley Knight and Sharon Rose has added more dates to its London run.
Currently playing at The Old Vic, the show will now extend by a week and finish on 8 April 2023.
Sylvia brings together dance, hip hop, funk and soul to reveal a remarkable moment in history – celebrating the life of Sylvia Pankhurst – feminist, activist, pacifist, socialist, rebel – who changed the lives of working women and men across the world.
The show is directed and choreographed by Kate Prince, and has original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde, a book by Kate Prince with Priya Parmar, and lyrics by Kate Prince.
Beverley Knight (The Drifters Girl, Sister Act) plays Emmeline Pankhurst in the show, with Sharon Rose (Hamilton, Motown the Musical) as her daughter Sylvia, the lesser-known Pankhurst at the heart of the Suffragette movement.
