Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Denise Van Outen stars in musical play Some Girl I Used To Know featuring great songs from the 80’s and 90’s.

Acclaimed stage and screen star Denise Van Outen brings a one-woman musical play to London this summer, as Some Girl I Used To Know plays at the Arts Theatre for a limited season.

Some Girl I Used to Know is a touching and funny musical play about life and love, and features Denise singing songs from some of the greatest hits of the 80’s and 90’s including Culture Club’s Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, the Thompson Twins’ Hold Me Now and Soft Cell’s Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.

Some Girl I Used To Know is co-written by Denise Van Outen and Terry Ronald (Becoming Nancy) and directed by Michael Howcroft.

The perfect girly night out in London.


Stephanie Canworth (Denise Van Outen) has it all. She’s beautiful, has a successful career, a supportive husband and she’s a media darling; life is great. But it takes just one Facebook poke from a blast-from-the-past and all the old memories start flooding back – candy floss, kisses, first loves and broken hearts – and with the old memories come the old temptations.


Denise Van Outen is a much-loved TV and stage star. Her West End theatre credits include Legally Blonde, Rent, Tell Me On a Sunday, Chicago, Stop The World I Want To Get Off and Les Miserables.
TV work includes Hotel Babylon, Babes in the Wood, Where The Heart Is and Murder in Mind,
Film credits include Run For Your Wide, Are You Ready For Love and Tube Tales.
Denise has presented shows including Daybreak, The 5 O’Clock Show, For One Night Only, Grease: Your’re The One That I Want, Any Dream Will Do and The Big Breakfast.


“Her performance is incredibly powerful… a standing ovation on its first night… worth checking out for Denise’s great singing alone” The Sun
“It is Van Outen’s inserted cover versions of torch songs by Soft Cell, Culture Club and others that really shine out, delivered with soft, mellifluous breathiness but gaining reverberative strength” The Times
“Her soaring vocals and superbly delivered lyrics provide the beating heart to this girl’s story” The Stage
