NEWS: Ushers – The Front of House Musical gets West End extension

After receiving a clutch of 5-star rave reviews and great audiences in a late night slot, USHERS: The Front of House Musical has been promoted! USHERS: The Front of House Musical will now get a month-long West End residency as the main show at Charing Cross Theatre from Tuesday 13 May to Saturday 7 June.

Set in the West End theatre hosting Oops! I Did It Again, The Britney Spears Musical, USHERS: The Front of House Musical follows a working shift in the lives of the stagiest people in the theatre – the front of house staff. It portrays the hilarious, ridiculous and frequently moving stories of ice-cream and programme sellers who dare to dream…including a three-year workplace romance that is on the rocks, an untrained newbie working her first shift and the amorous manager who is under pressure to cut costs. What could possibly go wrong?

USHERS: The Front of House Musical has big, bold company numbers, Fosse-like ice cream tray choreography and a script with heart, soul and an ice-bucket full of laughs. and described by our own reviewer as a “Love Letter to the Front of House”. The extension cast includes Daniel Buckley, Ceris Hine, Ross McNeill, Liam Ross-Mills and Carly Thoms.

USHERS: The Front of House Musical brings together the writing talents of Yiannis Koutsakos (music &lyrics), James Oban (lyrics) – @Westendproducer’s Search for A Twitter Composer (#SFATC) finalists – and BBC comedy actor James Rottger (book). Described by them as Front of House’s answer to A Chorus Line, it marks the trio’s musical theatre writing deb́ut.
