Michael Crawford leads the cast of the new West End musical The Go-Between, a beautiful and touching adaptation of L.P.Hartley’s classic novel.
This glorious new British musical comes triumphantly into the West End following critical acclaim at West Yorkshire Playhouse. Now starring Michael Crawford in his first leading role in a musical for 20 years (having created the title roles in The Phantom of the Opera, and Barnum).
The Go-Between tells a dramatic and moving coming of age story, explored through vibrant music and passionate song. Leo Colston (played by Michael Crawford), reflects on the hot summer of 1900 spent in Norfolk at the country house of his school friend Marcus, and his unwitting role acting as a go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian (Gemma Sutton, Gyspy) and tenant-farmer Ted (Stuart Ward, Once). Their secret love affair, carried out against the wishes of the formidable Mrs Maudsley (Issy van Randwyck, Fascinating Aida), has devastating effects on those around them and in particular young Leo who will be changed forever.
Don’t miss this sensationally entertaining new musical adaption of the much loved novel The Go-Between, at the Apollo Theatre for 20 weeks only from 27th May.
