Dolly Parton Musical - Here You Come Again
Love Dolly? You're not alone. Everyone adores Dolly Parton's positivity, kindness, good cheer, love of life... and of course her stunning music. She's an example to us all. This is your chance to see the new Dolly Parton musical, Here You Come Again, due in the West End following an extensive tour of the UK.
The tour dates have been announced for the Leeds Playhouse premiere. After the subsequent tour, there's going to be a West End transfer. So what can you expect once the show lands in the capital?
What's the story behind Dolly Parton Musical - Here You Come Again?
The US production was written by the two-time Emmy award-winning comedy writer and songwriter Bruce Vilanch, in collaboration with Gabriel Barre - who also directed the US version - and the talented Tricia Paoluccio who played the role of Dolly. As you can imagine it's jammed full of delicious Dolly songs, all the best-loved tunes rolled out in a glorious river of gorgeousness as the plot unfolds.
Here You Come Again has been adapted for UK audiences by the brilliant British playwright Jonathan Harvey, who gave us Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Coronation Street. It's a co-production with Simon Friend Entertainment and it's on stage in Leeds from 11th May to 8th June 2024. The musical's West End dates, plans, cast and creative team will be announced nearer the time.
About Dolly Parton Musical - Here You Come Again
Director Gabriel Barre is thrilled the show's appearing in the UK and pleased with the fresh new approach being taken for the UK production. As he said, “We are so excited to bring this gem of a show to the UK, following its successful regional tour in America. Setting it in the UK with a brilliant new British actor playing the lead role of Kevin, along with a creative UK design team, gives us a chance to take a fresh approach to a story that features all of Dolly's biggest hits, along with her wit and wisdom, which the world needs today, more than ever. She will be gloriously brought to life by the American actor, Tricia Paoluccio, who has been stunning audiences everywhere, embodying the spirit, humour, and heart that have made Dolly an enduring icon.”
The Producer Simon Friend is just as delighted. In his words, “I'm delighted to be co-producing the UK premiere of Here You Come Again with the team at Leeds Playhouse. It's a marvellously original and joyous new musical which celebrates the timeless classics of Dolly Parton, and lets us indulge in her biggest hits for a wonderful evening of theatre.”
