If you’re looking for a comical new musical in the capital then you need look no further than Miss Atomic Bomb at St James’s Theatre, which takes us back to a world of nuclear weaponry in 1950s Nevada. The production is the brand new show from the team of Adam Long, Gabriel Vick and Alex Jackson-Long (with Adam Long directing alongside Bill Deamer) and is set to entertain audiences from March.
And if that’s not enough, audiences will also be interested to know that Catherine Tate will be taking on a lead role in the production. Fans of hers will undoubtedly be thrilled to see her work alongside fellow performers Dean John-Wilson, Daniel Boys, Simon Lipkin and Florence Andrews.
The story is set in Las Vegas during that period of history in which the atomic bombs were tested in the desert, making the Nevada city the hotbed of tourists and sightseers flocking to see explosions, with mushroom clouds outshining any firework display. It is the early 1950s and amongst this chaos of excitement we meet four characters whose worlds are shaped by it – not always positively – in the forms of Candy, Myrne, Joey and Lou.
Catherine Tate is one of those who will inhabit this world. The well known performer found huge success with her series The Catherine Tate show on television and since then she has become a star of the screen and the stage on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to roles in Doctor Who, the US version of The Office and stage shows like Much Ado About Nothing at the Wyndham’s Theatre (alongside her Doctor Who co-star David Tennant).
So her presence will ensure audiences flock to the St James Theatre to take a trip back in time to nuclear weapons, beauty pageants and sunshine as Miss Atomic Bomb opens in March 2016.
