Don’t miss the ‘joyous musical fun’ (The Times) of MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS, the hilarious five-star musical that the Daily Express is hailing as a ‘triumph’. Based on the much loved film that starred Dame Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins, this ‘unashamedly entertaining’ (Daily Mail) new musical has been acclaimed by the Times as ‘a winner’.

It’s London, 1937, and recently widowed eccentric, Laura Henderson, is looking for a way of spending her time and money. After acquiring and renovating the Windmill Theatre, she hires feisty impresario Vivian Van Damm to present a bill of non-stop variety acts. But as war looms something more is required to boost morale and box office... Mrs Henderson comes up with the idea of The Windmill Girls - glamorous young women posing as nude statues - and audiences flock!

With book and direction by the Tony Award-winning Terry Johnson (La Cage Aux Folles), choreography by Andrew Wright (Singin’ in the Rain, Guys and Dolls), lyrics by the multi-award-winning Don Black (Sunset Boulevard) and music by George Fenton and Simon Chamberlain, this extraordinary and heartwarming new production stars Olivier-winner Tracie Bennett (Les Misérables, End of the Rainbow, ITV’s Coronation Street), Olivier-nominated Ian Bartholomew (Into the Woods) and Olivier-nominated Emma Williams (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).

This was a first class production and its a shame it closed this weekend. I'm writing this review in case it tours the UK in the near future and some of the same cast are involved . I enjoyed it so much that having seen it for the first time on the day before closure, I travelled back down to London the next day, at some considereable expense, to see its final performance. In a nutshell, this is a really good musical that contains plenty of humour and is a really good night out. Its a real shame the cast weren't rewarded with a longer stay in the west end. It has humour, it has a great soundtrack. It has everything you would want from a new musical. If it tours, make sure you go.

So much better than the reviews led us to believe. Great entertainment - fun but with fact that content is factual adds to the underlying serious issues of the time.
