by -

Thom Southerland is to direct a “reimagining” of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, which will run at the Charing Cross Theatre starring Rebecca Caine.

The production will open on November 27 and run until January 3, 2015, with a press night on December 2.

Southerland’s recent credits include Titanic and Parade for the Southwark Playhouse.

Caine, who originated the role of Cosette in Les Miserables, will play Katisha, with Mark Heenehan as The Mikado. Heenehan recently appeared in Guys and Dolls at Chichester Festival Theatre, playing Brannigan.

Other cast members include Matthew Crowe, Leigh Coggins, Steve Watts and Josh Wylie.

It will have choreography by Joey McNeely, musical direction by Iain Vince Gatt, set design by Phil Lindley, costumes by Jonathan Lipman and lighting by Mike Robertson.

The show is produced by Steven M Levy and Sean Sweeney.
