The producers of new musical Glory Ride have released a song from the show ahead of its world premiere at Charing Cross Theatre.
The song features Amy Di Bartolomeo singing “Promises” from the show.
Alongside Amy Di Bartolomeo (Six, Bat Out of Hell), the cast includes Josh St. Clair (Frozen, City of Angels, Wicked) in the lead as Gino Bartali, Fed Zanni (Mamma Mia! The Party, Head Over Heels), Daniel Robinson (Heathers the Musical, My Night with Reg), Ruairidh McDonald, Ryan Bennett (Heathers the Musical), Peter Watts (Macbeth, UK Tour), Jamie Coyne, Loris Scarpa (Once in Concert), Susanna Paisio (Una Mendicante Cieca Cantava l’Amore, Teatro dei Sensibili, Milan), Steve Watts (As You Like It) and Alice Spigariol.
