SHIRLEY VALENTINE, the Tony and Olivier Award winning play by Willy Russell, will be revived in a brand new production this coming January 22, 2022.
This production stars Broadways TREGONEY SHEPHERD (Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, WICKED, Mary Poppins). Shepherd is directed by star of stage and screen, New Yorks HARRY BOUVY (Silence! The Musical, A Man for All Seasons, SPAMALOT, The Producers, WICKED) Shirley Valentine, a comedy about a middle-aged Liverpool housewife trapped in a loveless marriage, first appeared in 1986 at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre before transferring to the West End where it won two Olivier Awards, and then to Broadway where it won a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, an Outer Critic’s Circle Award and the Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut. It is probably more commonly known for the 1989 film starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti, however, the original play is a one-woman show in three acts.

 "It is a simple and brilliant idea...the profound and perennial point of the comedy is the problem we seem to have contemplating the idea of a woman alone - in a pub, on a beach, in a restaurant. This is what Shirley learns to combat as she unravels her own sexual and social identity. The play is not only funny, it is also moving." Michael Coveney, Financial Times
