HONEYMOON IN VEGAS
Based on the hit 1992 film starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicholas Cage, Honeymoon in Vegas tells the story of mild-mannered Brooklynite, Jack, who haunted by the fear of a promise to his dying mother never to get married, avoids proposing to his new girlfriend Betsy. He finally summons the nerve and takes Betsy to Las Vegas only to have his plans compromised by a dashing gambler with an eye for luxury and Jack’s new fiancée.
The New York Times called the Broadway production “[a] bright and bouncy…real-live, old-fashioned, deeply satisfying Broadway musical in a way few new shows are anymore.”
Honeymoon in Vegas has a book by Andrew Bergman and score by Tony-Award winning Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs For A New World, The Last Five Years and The Bridges of Madison County). The musical had its Broadway premiere in 2015 at New York’s Nederlander Theatre. This concert – in which the cast will be joined by the 30-strong London Musical Theatre Orchestra – will see it performed in London for the very first time.
Hoenymoon in Vegas is the first concert of the 2017 for the ground-breaking London Musical Theatre Orchestra, which officially launched in 2016. LMTO's other star-studded concerts to date have been Rodgers & Hammerstein’s State Fair (Cadogan Hall, November 2016) and Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens‘ A Christmas Carol (Lyceum Theatre, December 2016).
