The Union Theatre is transformed into a 1940s nightclub for its revival of the classic Noel Coward musical.

A romantic throwback to another era, the story involves strapping sailors, gangland thugs, a stolen necklace, star-crossed lovers and sharp-tongued chorus girls, all taking place in a Soho nightclub in 1949.

The score was the source for many songs which became part of Coward's own cabaret repertoire, including such well-loved standards as Sail Away, Josephine, I Like America, Three Juvenile Delinquents, Chase Me, Charlie, and many more.

The musical has not been staged professionally in Central London since its original 1950 production.

Directed by Jack Thorpe Baker, with choreography by Mark Smith and musical arrangements by Steven Edis.
