The new Union Theatre will open its doors with a revival production of THE FIX.
Michael Strassen’s show ran at the original Union Theatre in 2012 and will now be the premiere production at the new home.
Featuring a book and lyrics by John Dempsey and music by Dana P. Rowe, the musical takes audiences on a journey through the American political machine as Violet is determined to create the perfect politician out of her son.
The production will be present by Atomicus Entertainment, with casting yet to be announced.
The patrons of the new Union Theatre have also been announced as West End leading lady Ruthie Henshall and Olivier-Award winning choreographer Stephen Mear.
Henshall said: “The success of off-West End theatre is vital to the future of the industry as a whole. The most exciting new ideas, skills and talent are found in venus just like The Union which is why I am so proud to be their new patron. Over the years it has captivated audiences with imaginative and stimulating programming.”
Commenting on the premiere production, she add: “Now, as the company moves into it’s beautiful new home, and with an electrifying first production in Michael Strassen’s THE FIX, the future of The Union, and London theatre, has never looked brighter.”
Additionally, Mear said: “The Union Theatre has brought to the fore such an amazing array of productions, encouraging innovative ideas and nurturing them in to new and exciting projects that reach into the hearts of the audience. I personally would like to thank The Union for inspiring so many and providing such an invaluable learning platform and springboard for the next generation in order for the tremendously imaginative and creative work to continue within such a wonderfully diverse industry.”
