Competition: Win tickets to Miss Atomic Bomb at St James Theatre
Welcome to Las Vegas in 1952, where every mushroom cloud has a silver lining and fallout is your friend.
As the US military proudly tests its atomic bombs within sight of the Vegas strip, tourists are flocking into town to see who will be crowned the Miss Atomic Bomb beauty queen.
But in the midst of this euphoria, farm girl Candy’s sheep have mysteriously died, her fashionista friend Myrna is designing clothes for pigs, young soldier Joey has deserted the army, and his hapless hotel manager brother Lou desperately needs an atomic gimmick. In a city controlled by the military and the mob, time is running out for our four friends.
Inspired by the real life bomb tests and beauty pageants of the era, Miss Atomic Bomb is a radiant new musical comedy co-directed by the Olivier Award-winning choreographer Bill Deamer (Top Hat) and Adam Long (The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged).
Miss Atomic Bomb stars award winning star of TV and theatre, Catherine Tate, who is reunited with West End star Simon Lipkin following their critical and audience success in Sondheim’s Assassins at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
They are joined by Dean John-Wilson who will take the lead role in Disney’s Aladdin this Summer, Daniel Boys – a finalist in BBC 1’s Any Dream Will Do and rising musical theatre star Florence Andrews.
Miss Atomic Bomb is at St James Theatre, London from March 7 to April 9
