The Boyfriend may be about to make a major West End comeback, 50 years after its first appearance at the Players Theatre, and later the Wyndhams in the West End, where it contributed greatly to the career of Julie Andrews. The new production of Sandy Wilson's musical, set in the 1920s, will, if the reports are true, Broadway star Liliane Montevechhi and Roy Barraclough, latterly of Coronation Street fame. A spring 2003 tour is planned, followed by an assault on the West End.
