Seventy-seven years after Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers lit up Hollywood’s silver screen with one of the greatest dance musicals of all time, RKO Pictures’ TOP HAT is coming to the West End.
Straight from a hugely successful pre-London tour, TOP HAT will land at the Aldwych Theatre in the West End beginning 19 April 2012. Tickets are on sale now with special discounts for preview performances to 8 May.
In TOP HAT, Tom Chambers (Holby City heartthrob and Strictly Come Dancing winner) plays the irrepressible Broadway sensation Jerry Travers who dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society model Dale Tremont, played by triple Olivier Award nominee Summer Strallen (Love Never Dies, The Sound of Music, The Drowsy Chaperone).
Packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits, stunning tap, romantic ballroom and a little bit of Busby Berkeley thrown in for good measure, TOP HAT is a giddy, glorious celebration of 1930s song and dance, featuring magnificent sets, over 200 costumes and a love story that will set the pulses racing!
