West End stars Landi Oshinowo (Shrek, Barnum, Sister Act) and Nicolas Colicos (Shrek, Barnum, Sister Act) lead the cast of the first UK revival of I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road at Jermyn Street Theatre.
They will be joined by Rosanna Hyland (Urinetown, Sister Act, Shrek), Kristen Gaetz (42 Street on Broadway, White Christmas US Tour, Crazy for You US Tour), David Gibbons (LSMT), Alice Offley (Teddy, The Secret Rapture), Rich Craig (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Waterloo) and previously announced Musical Director, Nick Barstow.
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 Apollo Theatre.
This new production promises to lead audiences on a moving and emotionally charged musical journey about love, friendships and new beginnings.
I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road tells the story of singer songwriter Heather Jones who is finally breaking out of her celebrity mould, reaching for a new life as a new woman – no longer ‘daughter’, ‘wife’ and ‘celebrity product’. 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.
