Simply Heavenly Rewrites West End History???

By • West End
Though it's just opened, Josette Bushell-Mingo's production of Langston Hughes' Simply Heavenly is creating a major feelgood buzz. The Young Vic has already had to extend the musical comedy's limited run to meet demand for tickets (See Today's {News), and a theatre spokesperson has told that, venue availability permitting, chances of a West End transfer "are very high". The company - which includes musical all-stars Clive Rowe, Ruby Turner and Nicola Hughes as well as superb leading man Rhashan Stone - are apparently ready, willing, able and - as far as we're concerned - totally deserving. What a turnaround such a transfer would make, too. Though all but forgotten, the 1957 Broadway musical had its European premiere at the West End's Adelphi Theatre in 1958, but closed ignominiously after less than 20 performances.
