The long-planned revival of classic 1937 musical comedy Me and My Girl is back on the cards. It was previously due at the West End’s New London Theatre in May 2004, but that opening was shelved after the success of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat rendered it homeless (See The Goss, 24 Dec 2003). The musical is now starting out on the road, launching a 35-week tour (full dates still tbc) from Plymouth in September, ahead of a planned West End transfer in 2007. Robert Lindsay - with the help of "his girl" Emma Thompson - famously made the part of cockney millionaire heir Bill Snibson his own in the 1985 revival at the Adelphi Theatre. Lindsay won an Olivier and a Tony, while the production played for more than eight years in London and three years on Broadway. In the new production - directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle (protégé of Susan Stroman) and designed by Walt Spangler – Richard Frame (Our House and, most recently, Promises Promises in Sheffield) will be doing “The Lambeth Walk” as Bill with Steps’ Faye Tozer (Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) as Sally Smith. The cast is also likely to feature Sylvester McCoy, Trevor Bannister and Dillie Keane, while Stephen Fry, who made revisions for the 1985 staging, is in discussions to tinker about again with the book by L Arthur Rose and Douglas Furber.
