The Woman in White Tickets

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony and Olivier-Award nominated musical, The Woman in White, returns to the West End this winter. Adapted from Wilkie Collins’ haunting Victorian thriller this emotive, spine-tingling musical will debut Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Zippel’s exciting revised score for the piece, playing a limited run at the Charring Cross Theatre from November.

The story follows Walter Hartright, whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a mysterious woman clothed in white, frantic to reveal a disturbing secret. Soon Walter takes up work as a drawing master to Laura Fairlie and her half-sister Marian.

Walter begins to fall for the beautiful Laura but a chilling intrigue falls upon him as he detects the likeness of the peculiar woman in white in Laura’s face. The two’s burgeoning romance is upset by her engagement to the sinister Sir Percival Glyde. There begins exhilarating race to find the truth of the clandestine connection between Laura, Sir Percival, and the woman in white.

First premiering at the Palace Theatre in 2004, The Woman in White, opened to critical acclaim. The show now returns under the helm of rising directorial star Thom Southerland (Allegro Southwark Playhouse, Titanic at Charing Cross Theatre).

Casting includes Anna O'Byrne (The Phantom of the Opera) as Laura Fairlie, alongside Chris Peluso (Miss Saigon, Death Takes a Holiday) as Sir Percival Glyde. Further casting includes Carolyn Maitland (Ghost) as Marian, Ashley Stillburn as Walter Hartright, Greg Castiglioni as Count Fosco and Sophie Reeves as Anne.

Nominated for three consecutive Evening Standard Awards (Best Production and Best Newcomer, Mack & Mabel and Parade) Southerland’s exciting revival reunites him with set designer Morgan Large, costume designer Jonathan Lipman and sound designer Andrew Johnson, further featuring lighting design from Rick Fisher.

Adapted from Wilkie Collins’ seminal text this sensational production is set to recapture all the passion and intrigue of the original novel, playing for a strictly limited run at the Charing Cross Theatre from the 20th November 2017 until the 10th February 2018.

This show left my jaw on the floor. It was haunting, intense, dramatic; I think I forgot to move the entire time. I was on the edge of my seat throughout, a brilliant piece of theatre which was also sung incredibly!

The Woman in White was a beautifully haunting show, with strong emotional performances from the whole cast. Only a few songs stood out as individual songs for me, other than that, it all felt like one continuous song. That actually at times helped to add to the mystery of the piece. Definitely one to catch if you can for something different, but not Lloyd Webber's greatest piece. It certainly works better on a smaller stage at Charing Cross than in a larger venue.

This is one of my favourite Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals and I was really sad it took a bit of a dive back in 2006 after only 3 years. Have to say that in my humble opinion this production beat the pants off the original. Much more gutsy and the costume of the Woman in White was perfect. Such a clever use of the small space with sliding doors often swinging apart to reveal the ghostly woman, sending chills down my back. Singing was just beautiful, acting superb and changing of the minimal sets clever and slick. My daughter came with me having never heard of it and was blown away. She said that she was so happy she went in blind, made it all the more impactful for her. I loved this production. Go see it!!!

So this was the second helping of this show for my daughter and I with only had a short run at the lovely Charing Cross Theatre which was perfect for this show featuring a train line as the rumbling of trains gave the show that little extra something! The entire cast was amazing, beautiful singing. Am a big fan of Anna O'Byrne who played Laura with great passion and pathos. The costumes were just lovely, set so simple but extraordinarily clever. This show really needs to be aired more frequently in the West End. Five stars all round.

I was pleasantly surprised by this production. I'm not a massive Lloyd Webber fan, however found the songs in this to be incredibly moving and beautifully sung by an excellent cast. The set was very basic but as the theatre is so small, this was to be expected. A really good production
