Thursday Theatre News: Celia Imrie, America Ferrera, Joley Richardson, Million Dollar Quartet & The Kings Speech

Sad news to start this week: Million Dollar Quartet is closing. After nearly a year in the West End, the musical which celebrates the four greats of rock’n’roll (Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins) will close on 14 January at the Noel Coward Theatre. (The producers are planning to take the production on a tour of the UK, so this isn’t necessarily the end for this show!)

Are you a fan of The Kings Speech? The Oscar-winning film actually started life as a play by David Seidler, which is happily being produced at the Richmond Theatre next March. The Kings Speech is directed by former RSC Artistic Director Adrian Noble and stars Charles Edwards as King George VI. I think it’ll make a fantastic play; can’t wait to see it!

And now this week’s cast news:

More next week!

    Confusingly, Charles Edwards played Edward VIII in a TV movie called Bertie & Elizabeth which was the same story as the King’s Speech and from a similar angle. He was very good in as Michael Palin in Holy Flying Circus.
