McQueen, the play about fashion designer Alexander McQueen, is to transfer to the West End.

For its West End transfer, the play will have scenes rewritten and an interval added.

The production, which originally ran at the St James Theatre earlier this year, will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from August 13 to November 7, with a press night on August 27.

Directed by John Caird, the show stars Stephen Wight in the title role, who reprises his part from the original production.

Carly Bawden joins the production as Dahlia, replacing Dianna Agron, who was in the show when it played at the St James Theatre.

Tracy-Ann Oberman and Laura Rees also return to the play having appeared in it originally. Michael Bertenshaw joins the cast as Mr Hitchcock. Further casting is to be announced.

Writer James Phillips said: “I’m so delighted to have McQueen in the West End and to take this opportunity to refine some things from the original production.”

It has design by David Farley, choreography by Christopher Marney, video by Tim Bird and lighting by David Howe. Sound is by John Leonard, with wigs designed by Linda McKnight.

It is produced in the West End by Robert Mackintosh, Amir Ltd, Hilary A Williams and Deborah Negri, with Julian Stoneman as executive producer.
