Landi Oshinowo stars in landmark revival

I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road at the Jermyn Street Theatre.

I'm Getting My Act

The first UK revival of ground-breaking, long running, off-Broadway and West End musical I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road marks the show’s triumphant return to London 35 years after it was first seen at the Apollo Theatre.

It will play at the Jermyn Street Theatre Wednesday 6th – Saturday 23rd July 2016.

Featuring a stellar cast led by West End stars Landi Oshinowo (Shrek, Barnum, Sister Act) and Nicolas Colicos (Mamma Mia, Sunset Boulevard, Sister Act, The Bodyguard) this new production promises to lead audiences on a moving and emotionally charged musical journey about love, friendships and new beginnings.

Described as a ‘controversial sensation’, I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road marked a watershed moment in the history of musical theatre when it first premiered, challenging gender roles through the exploration of friendships, relationships and the pursuit of personal goals. Now, London audiences will experience a new production of this touching, poignant and hilarious show.

Director Matthew Gould comments, “I am thrilled to have the chance to direct one of my favourite musicals at the Jermyn Street Theatre, London’s leading Off West End studio theatre. We have put together a talented West End cast to bring an exciting and contemporary interpretation of the show to London this summer.”

I’m Getting My Act Together and Taking it On the Road tells the story of singer-songwriter Heather Jones who is finally breaking out of her celebrity mould, reaching for a new life as a new woman – no longer ‘daughter’, ‘wife’ and ‘celebrity product’. Music and lyrics are by musical duo of Gretchen Cryer and Nancy Ford.
