The Menier Chocolate Factory in London is regularly the home of some stand-out shows and such is their high profile and popularity they often transfer to the West End, making it and the Chichester Festival Theatre top places to keep an eye on when it comes to future Theatreland hits. In 2010 this was true for two Willy Russell shows – “Shirley Valentine” and “Educating Rita” – and now a new version of the latter makes its way to the venue once again as part of a UK national tour. This time around those with theatre tickets will have the opportunity to witness the performing talents of Claire Sweeney and Matthew Kelly.
Sweeney is well known to audiences for her portrayal of Lindsey Corkhill in “Brookside” though she has also made a name for herself with reality television like “Celebrity Big Brother” and “Strictly Come Dancing”. Meanwhile, her career has also seen her appear in West End hits like “Chicago” at the Cambridge Theatre (which is now at the Garrick Theatre).
In “Educating Rita” London theatre audiences will witness the evolving friendship between Rita, a Liverpudlian hairdresser studying with the Open University, and Frank, her lecturer, as her unique outlook challenges his views of the world. It is a well known piece of work that has been popular for many decades and was also adapted into a film with Michael Caine in the role of Frank.
Meanwhile, the West End remains the home of another of Willy Russell’s hits – “Blood Brothers” at the Phoenix Theatre.
“Educating Rita” begins its run at the Menier Chocolate Factory on Wednesday 25th April 2012 and continues to Saturday 21st May 2012.
