Gossip is swirling through theatreland that Broadway director Jerry Mitchell’s next project with Ambassador Theatre Group may be Irving Berlin’s Easter Parade.

The show would be part of Mitchell’s new prod co with ATG’s Howard Panter, their first project being Dirty Rotten Scoundrels currently playing at the Savoy Theatre starring Robert Lindsay and Alex Gaumond.

Jerry Mitchell and ATG had previously partnered on Legally Blonde The Musical at the Savoy, which starred Sheridan Smith and Alex Gaumond.

Now all three – Mitchell, Smith and Gaumond – are set to reunite on a new production of Irving Berlin’s classic musical Easter Parade.

The show will feature a new book by US playwright Ken Ludwig, who has good form on reviving classic American musicals due to his award-winning work on Crazy For You.

A workshop of the show will be held shortly, and will also include Dan Burton (Gypsy in Chichester) and Sophie Isaacs (Made in Dagenham).

The famous 1948 movie version of Easter Parade starred Judy Garland, and the show will feature all of the songs from the movie plus some other classic from the Irving Berlin catalogue.

Jerry Mitchell’s current smash-hit production of Kinky Boots is still doing great business on Broadway and is set to come to London in late 2015 or 2016.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels directed by Jerry Mitchell is playing at the Savoy Theatre until 7 March 2015.

Review of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre

Review of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre

★★★★

A cast change at Jerry Mitchell’s sunny production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre prompts this review, and we’re pleased to report that it remains a thing of theatrical beauty.

Any one of a Cote d’Azur setting, dancing bellboys at a glamorous hotel or Katherine Kingsley in chiffon would probably suffice on its own. But add in a cast overflowing with talent, the slickest direction and choreography you are likely to see this side of the Atlantic and a show-stopping new cast member, and you have that rare thing, West End alchemy.

The said new cast member is Alex Gaumond. Not unfamous in the West End, he has been catching our eye for a while, from his star turn in Mitchell’s Legally Blonde, to step-in roles in We Will Rock You and Matilda.

He steps-in again in this show, this time following Rufus Hound as brash young American con-man Freddy Benson. And I defy anyone to find a more confident, joyous and accomplished performance in the West End as he is giving right now. Clearly relishing every last gag, Gaumond is a rare find – someone who sings divinely, moves and dances with skill, can play comedy that punches every single gag home, and delivers an easy charm that wins over pretty much everyone in the audience. If he doesn’t become one of the most successful stage stars of his generation then there’s something wrong (with everything).

Other new additions to the cast include Bonnie Langford as Muriel Eubanks and Gary Wilmot as Andrew Thibault, both having fun and delivering the required sparkle in champagne bucket loads.

Robert Lindsay remains as elder-statesman conman Lawrence Jameson, channelling Nathan Lane in The Producers as he cons a succession of dames out of their dough. He may often be playing Robert Lindsay playing suave, sophisticated and arrogant, but hey, no one can play Robert Lindsay like him.

He commands the show from the beginning to end and justly deserves the top billing, but it’s the sheer energy and will of his co-stars, including the joyful versatility of Katherine Kingsley, that make it all work – and sometimes saves him from himself.

In short, a succession of beautifully judged performances, from stars to ensemble, make this the happiest, snappiest and slickest musical comedy currently on the West End stage.

PAUL RAVEN

Urgent Note: With Gypsy coming in to the Savoy at the end of March, it may be your last chance to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in the West End. Don’t blow it!

Musicals director Jerry Mitchell told The Stage last week that he plans to produce and direct a new musical based on the book Becoming Nancy by Terry Ronald.

A gay coming-of-age tale set in 1970’s London, Becoming Nancy is about schoolboy David Starr who is cast as Nancy in a school production of Oliver! He subsequently falls for handsome school football team captain Maxie Boswell, confides in teacher Hamish McClarnon, and is supported by best friend Frances Bassey.

The musical would be part of his new Jerry Mitchell Productions company that he has formed in association with Ambassador Theatre Group.

Becoming Nancy was written by Terry Ronald, who was originally a pop star before becoming a well-known writer, lyricist and arranger for artists including Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue, The Wanted and Westlife. He is also a musicals writer and arranger, with West End credits including work on Rent Remixed, The Hurly Burly Show and co-writer of new Denise Van Outen one-woman play Some Girl I Used To Know.

The first project for Mitchell’s new company is musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre starring Rufus Hound and Robert Lindsay.

Mitchell is also working on a new musical based on a album.

Jerry Mitchell is one of Broadway’s most respected directors, with recent work including last year’s big Tony winner Kinky Boots, which is on its way to the West End, and Legally Blonde The Musical.

We knew it

Following our recent”Broadway to London: Broadway hits we want to see transfer to the West End in 2014” top of the list was Kinky Boots – the Tony Award winning musical penned by Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein and based on the British film that starred Chiwetel Ejiofor.

And now Jerry Mitchell, director of Kinky Boots, has confirmed that the show is to transfer to London in 2015.

At a press conference today for his new show Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre, he confirmed to The Stage that, “It’s definitely coming” and that the show was scouting four suitable theatres but all currently have shows in them.

The news places Kinky Boots as the front-runner for most exciting new opening of 2015. Following Billy Porter’s extraordinary performance as Lola in the New York production, announcements on casting will be of huge interest.

We are gunning for Billy to do London!
