When Cameron Mackintosh brought Betty Blue Eyes to the West End – his first original musical in over a decade, a Stiles and Drewe-scored musical adaptation of A Private Function – it was clear that the titular sow was going to be no ordinary pig.
Currently starring in the musical at London’s Novello Theatre and appearing nightly alongside Sarah Lancashire, Reece Shearsmith, Adrian Scarborough and Ann Emery, is a specially created animatronic pig, which reportedly cost over £100,000 to create, voiced by none other than Kylie Minogue.
The Australian pop singer, songwriter and actress was backstage at the Novello this afternoon (11 August 2011) to meet members of the cast and the West End star who’s hogging the lime light.
