UK TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED FOR DUSTY - THE NEW DUSTY SPRINGFIELD MUSICAL

DUSTY, the landmark new musical based on the authorised biography of Dusty Springfield will have its world premiere at Theatre Royal Bath in June 2018 before dates at Newcastle Theatre Royal, The Lyceum in Sheffield and The Lowry in Salford.

With a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing, Coronation Street), DUSTY will be directed by Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman (Merrily We Roll Along, Stepping Out) and star Katherine Kingsley (Piaf, Singin' in the Rain) in what promises to be a career-defining performance celebrating the music of a lifetime. Further casting will be announced in due course.

Featuring many of Dusty Springfield's blazingly soulful pop hits, including I Only Want to Be with You, Son of a Preacher Man and You Don't Have to Say You Love Me, DUSTY celebrates the extraordinary and vivacious woman whose timeless voice immortalised her as "one of Britain's most successful female singers" (The Telegraph).
