At last we know who is taking over from current Top Hat star Tom Chambers in February – it’s musical theatre veteran Gavin Lee.
Lee has spent the last six years in New York starring as Bert in hit production Mary Poppins. The actor originated the role in the West End and headed to Broadway after the show’s acclaimed 2 yr run at the Prince Edward theatre ended. He has also appeared in numerous West End shows including Crazy For You, Peggy Sue Got Married, Me And My Girl and Oklahoma.
Summer Strallen, who plays Dale Tremont until 24th November, will be replaced by Charlotte Gooch who has come directly from the national touring production of Dirty Dancing.
Top Hat is an amazing show full of catchy, well-known songs and outstanding dance numbers. It really is brilliantly staged and a wonderful feel-good musical which thoroughly entertains.
Have a great weekend everyone
