Emma Williams performs "If Mountains Were Easy To Climb" from Mrs Henderson Presents.

Following a sell-out season at the Theatre Royal, Bath, Mrs Henderson Presents makes its West End debut at the Noel Coward Theatre in February 2016.

Tracie Bennett and Emma Williams will reprise their roles as Mrs Henderson and Maureen. Ian Bartholomew will also return as Vivian Van Damm.

A new musical adaptation of the 2005 film starring Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins, the production tells the true story of Laura Henderson (Bennett), an eccentric widow who ran a nude revue at the Windmill Theatre in London's Soho in the 1940s.

Mrs Henderson Presents features a book and direction by Terry Johnson with lyrics by Don Black and music by George Fenton and Simon Chamberlain.
