18 June – 29 July 2018
Don’t miss the world premiere of the landmark new musical based on the extraordinary life of Dusty Springfield, featuring many of her blazingly soulful pop hits, including I Only Want to Be with You, Son of a Preacher Man and You Don't Have to Say You Love Me.
With a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing, Coronation Street/Gimme Gimme Gimme), DUSTY celebrates the pioneering and complex woman whose timeless voice immortalised her as “one of Britain's most successful female singers” (The Telegraph).
Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman (Merrily We Roll Along, Stepping Out) directs Katherine Kingsley (Piaf, Singin’ in the Rain) in a career-defining performance as the enigmatic icon.
