Eithne Browne, best known for her role as Chrissy Rogers in Brookside and recently seen in the Liverpool Royal Court's Homebaked, leads the cast of the forthcoming Musical of Musicals… The Musical!
Hope Street Theatre in Liverpool is the venue for the show’s first professional provincial production (November 16-27), and marks the debut of Laffan Productions, a new Liverpool-based theatrical company.
The show is a satire on musical theatre featuring five musicals in one, each written in the distinctive style of the masters of the genre: Rodgers & Hammerstein; Sondheim; Jerry Herman; Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Kander and Ebb.
Joining Eithne in the cast are: Tori Hargreaves (Blood Brothers, Soho Cinders); Dominic Treacy (The History Boys) and John-Paul Briss (Peaky Blinders, Mamma Mia!)
Director and Producer Sharon Byatt says: “Musical theatre has always been a major part of my life, and to be able to launch my new company with a show that pays homage to so many of the greats of musical theatre was the perfect fit.
“I'm thrilled the whole company is from Liverpool or has a connection to the city. Laffan Productions has an ambition to showcase the immense talent the region has to offer and this magnificent company will do just that.”
