Cilla and Shirley Valentine star Sheridan Smith is set to star in the brand new West End production Opening Night, beginning early next year.
The musical is based on the 1977 John Cassavetes film of the same name, and will run at London’s Gielgud Theatre.
Directed by Ivo Van Hove and with music and lyrics by Rufus Wainwright, Opening Night tells the tale of a theatre company as it prepares to stage a major new play on Broadway.

Drama ensues behind the scenes when the leading lady Myrtle (Sheridan Smith) is rocked by tragedy, forcing the cast to “deliver the performance of their lives.”
