The semi-staged production will see Adrian Lester (BBC series Hustle) star as Sky Masterson, with comedian and stage actor Jason Manford playing Nathan Detroit and cabaret star Meow Meow as Miss Adelaide.

The production marks the first time the musical has ever been performed in its entirety at the Royal Albert Hall and will be directed and choreographed by Stephen Mear, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

The classic musical comedy is a sizzling tale of gamblers, gangsters and nightclub singers set in the roaring twenties of New York.
