Following their successful run at the Shaftesbury Theatre, the world premiere musical adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover from GBM Productions will be digitally revived on Stream.Theatre this autumn. Created especially for filming, the enthralling production received standing ovations during its limited live engagement. Now a captivating cinematic experience, Lady Chatterley’s Lover will once again showcase the extraordinary talents of rising star Georgia Lennon (One Enchanted Evening, Glastonbury Abbey; Beauty and the Beast, Grand Opera House, Belfast) as Lady Chatterley, alongside Michael Pickering (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, London Palladium; Starlight Express, Germany) as Mellors.
Further casting includes Zoe Rogers (42nd Street, Theatre Royal Drury Lane) as Hilda, Jake Halsey-Jones (Hamilton, Victoria Palace Theatre) as Tommy, Sam Kipling (All-Male Pirates of Penzance, Palace Theatre) as war hero Sir Clifford and Emma Lindars (Groundhog Day, The Old Vic; Made in Dagenham, Adelphi Theatre) as Mrs Bolton, Clifford’s nurse.
Composer John Robinson commented: :It’s been a dream not only to have a production in the West End but to bring it to a wider audience through film and a streaming platform. Lady Chatterley’s story is still so resonant today.”
Infused with a soaring score by composer John Robinson (Behind the Iron Mask, Duchess Theatre; Closer to the Sun, Harold Pinter Theatre) and book by Phil Willmott (Once Upon a Time At the Adelphi; Relativity: The Einstein Musical), Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a beautiful reimagining of the classic text, directed by the award-winning Sasha Regan (Blondel, Union Theatre; All-Male Pirates of Penzance, UK and International tours). The production also features intricate production design by Andrew Exeter (High Fidelity, Turbine Theatre; Scaramouche Jones, Stream.Theatre), with costume design by Jasmine Swan (Animal Farm, Royal & Derngate).
Lady Chatterley’s Lover will be available to stream from Friday 15th October to Sunday 21st November 2021 via Stream.Theatre
