Lulu is set to return to the West End for the first time in 30 years to take over the role of Dorothy Brock in 42nd Street.

The Shout singer replaces Sheena Easton in the show’s first major cast change since it opened in April last year, while Ashley Day will join the company as Billy Lawlor, replacing Stuart Neal.

Clare Halse and Tom Lister will continue in their roles of Peggy Sawyer and Julian Marsh.

Lulu last appeared in the West End in 1985 when she played Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, alongside Clarke Peters.

The show’s new cast previews at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane from March 19.

42nd Street is produced in the West End by Michael Linnit and Michael Grae, with the Global Group of companies for Gate Ventures. Johnny Hon is executive producer.
