Jermyn Street Theatre, 16b Jermyn Street, London SW1Y 6ST Wednesday 6th– Saturday 23rd July 2016
Press Night: Saturday 9th July, 7.30pm
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.
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) this new production
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.
Director Matthew Gould comments, I am thrilled to have the chance to direct one of my
favourite musicals at the Jermyn Street Theatre, London’s leading Off West End studio theatre.
We have put together a talented West End cast to bring an exciting and contemporary
interpretation of the show to London this summer.
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’. Music and lyrics are from the
Broadway and Off-Broadway musical duo of Gretchen Cryer and Nancy Ford. The musical is
directed by Matthew Gould.
