Cast confirmed for West End version of Love Story
The cast for the upcoming West End debut of the musical Love Story has been announced.
Taking on the roles made famous by Ali McGraw and Ryan O'Neal in the 1970 film, Emma Williams and Michael Xavier are set to continue in the parts of Jenny and Oliver following their success in the show at the Chichester Festival Theatre.
Set to be staged at the Duchess Theatre, the curtain will go up for the first time in the West End on December 6th 2010.
Bookings will then be taken to April 30th 2011 for the show that will also see Peter Polycarpou reprise his role as Jenny's father Phil.
The new version of the musical has been produced by West End veteran Michael Ball, who told Daily Mail columnist Baz Bamigbiye in July that he was so convinced that the show would be a huge hit after watching it that he offered to put up his own money to finance it.
