“Clearly the most imaginative and melodic score heard in New York all season.” – Soho Weekly News
This first UK revival of this ground-breaking, long running, off-Broadway and West End musical – I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road – marks the show’s triumphant return to London 35 years after it was first seen at the West End.
Featuring a stellar cast led by West End stars Landi Oshinowo (Shrek, Barnum, Sister Act) and Nicolas Colicos (Mamma Mia, Sunset Boulevard, Sister Act, The Bodyguard). They will be joined by Rosanna Hyland (Urinetown, Sister Act, Shrek), Kristen Gaetz, David Gibbons, Alice Offley and Rich Craig.
This new production, directed by Matthew Gould, promises to lead audiences on a moving and emotionally charged musical journey about love, friendships and new beginnings. Described as a ‘controversial sensation’, I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road marked a watershed moment in the history of musical theatre when it first premiered, challenging gender roles through the exploration of friendships, relationships and the pursuit of personal goals. Now, London audiences will experience a new production of this touching, poignant and hilarious show.

The post-show Q&A will take place after the Sunday matinee on 10 July 2016. For the Q&A, I’ll be joined by director Matthew Gould and the show’s stars, including Landi Oshinowo and Nicolas Colicos.
