Sheridan Smith stars in ‘Opening Night’ in the West End


Sheridan Smith stars in a brand new musical adaptation of Opening Night at the Gielgud Theatre

Adapted from John Cassavetes legendary 1977 film, Opening Night follows Myrtle Gordon (Sheridan Smith), a famous but troubled actress, as she attemps to stage her comeback with a touring production of The Second Woman. However, the drama soon spills offstage when Gordon encounters obsessive teenage fan, Nancy. 

The meeting between the faded star and her die-hard devotee takes a sinister turn, and soon Gordon’s personal turmoil forces everyone within the company to deliver the performance of their lives. Can the theatre troupe perform the roles needed, or will they crack under pressure?

The show opens for previews on Wednesday 6th March and runs until July 27th. Tickets can be purchased here
