Betty Blue Eyes Tickets
BE THE FIRST TO FALL IN LOVE WITH BETTY BLUE EYES - TICKETS NOW ON SALE!
Belts are being tightened and the country’s long-suffering citizens are being told by the government that there will be fair shares for all in return for surviving Austerity Britain. Meanwhile local officials feather their own nests by taking far more than their own fair share. It is of course 1947, and having won the war Britain seems to have lost the peace, and the country is staggering under the burden of acute rationing, unemployment and the coldest winter for decades. The only bright spark on the horizon is the impending marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
Sarah Lancashire and Reece Shearsmith lead a simply marvellous cast of great British actors including David Bamber, Jack Edwards, Ann Emery, Mark Meadows and Adrian Scarborough. Directed by Richard Eyre, Betty Blue Eyes is like no musical you will have ever seen – but she is worth saving up for!
Book by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, adapted from the original story by Alan Bennett and Malcolm Mowbray. Music by George Stiles, Lyrics by Anthony Drew, Musical Staging by Stephen Mear and designed by Tim Hatley.
