Previously Posted: West End stars Jon Lee and Julie Atherton will star in a major new production of the award-winning musical Tomorrow Morning, which runs at the Landor Theatre from Tuesday, October 12 to Saturday, November 13, 2010.
Jack and Catherine are in their late 30s and on the brink of getting divorced, while John and Kat, who are in their early 20s, are getting married.
Tomorrow Morning, which is described as both moving and hilarious, is an intimate four-person musical about these couples and how their stories collide across time.
Jon Lee (John) began his career at the age of 12 playing the title role in Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver! at the London Palladium, alongside Jonathan Pryce. A major pop star with Simon Fuller’s group S Club 7, he has starred in the West End as Marius in Les Miserables at both the Palace Theatre and Queens Theatre. He will also appear in the celebrated musical’s forthcoming 25th anniversary concert at the O2.
His television credits include young Tom Tulliver in George Elliot’s The Mill on the Floss, alongside Emily Watson and Bernard Hill, and EastEnders (as Josh Saunders).
Julie Atherton (Kat) is best known as the original West End Kate Monster and Lucy the Slut in Avenue Q. However, she made her West End debut as Sophie in Mamma Mia!, before starring in Fame on tour and in the West End.
As a founder member of the Notes from New York company she has starred in shows at the Donmar Warehouse, the Arts Theatre, Trafalgar Studios and the Duchess Theatre and has headlined both instalments of Christmas in New York at the Apollo and Lyric Theatres.
Tomorrow Morning has book, music and lyrics by Laurence Mark Wythe and was first seen in London in 2006 at the New End Theatre.
This new version premiered in Chicago in 2008 with three new songs and a rewritten book. It was named Best Musical and won the Best Artistic Specialisation (Film and Video Design) Award at Chicago’s 2009 Joseph Jefferson Equity Awards. It also won Best Midsize Musical, alongside Broadway’s Caroline, or Change, which was named Best Large Musical.
Produced by Thomas Hopkins for The Landor Theatre, Tomorrow Morning will be directed by Robert McWhir, with musical direction by David Randall, design by Dan R Conley, video design by Mike Tutaj and lighting by Mike Robertson.
