The hit West End revival of Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine starring Sheridan Smith has posted new production images.

The show has proved box-office gold at the Duke of York’s, with producer David Pugh saying: “I’m delighted with this incredible success that Sheridan is having in Willy Russell’s wonderful play. As a theatre producer, we are nothing without our theatrical angels (investors) and these last few years have been tough, as they have been for many people, so this success in the West End should be heralded from the rooftops of the theatre.”

Sheridan Smith said: “Shirley Valentine is a dream part to play and going in every night and seeing not one empty seat has made my return to the West End so wonderful. We’re now releasing the final seats so I do hope that everybody who wants to come will be able to.”

London theatre critics have loved the show, with the Financial Times, the Independent and Daily Mail all giving the show five-starsread our reviews round-up of Shirley Valentine here.
