Anna O’Byrne is to lead the cast of The Woman in White at the Charing Cross Theatre.

The Australian performer has previously starred in The Phantom of the Opera in the West End and the Australian production of Love Never Dies.

Alongside O’Byrne, who will play Laura Fairlie, is Chris Peluso, who has previously appeared in Miss Saigon in the West End, as well as Carolyn Maitland.

The production, directed by Thom Southerland, features choreography by Cressida Carre, scenic design by Morgan Large, and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Adapted from Willkie Collins’ thriller of the same name, the musical will run later this year from November 20 to February 10. Press night will be on December 4.

Speaking about her role, O’Byrne commented: “I’m thrilled to be playing Laura in this re-imagined version of The Woman in White. Andrew’s score is just gorgeous, and it’s very special to continue our association on this show.” 

Patrick Gracey, Steven M Levy and Vaughan Williams with the Really Useful Group are producing the musical.
