The West End production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover musical will be streaming online this autumn.
The new stage version of D.H. Lawrence’s infamous literary classic held its world premiere in London in June at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
The show will now be made available to watch online via stream.theatre between 15 October and 21 November 2021.
Lady Chatterley’s Lover sees rising star Georgia Lennon (One Enchanted Evening, Glastonbury Abbey; Beauty and the Beast, Grand Opera House, Belfast) as Lady Chatterley, alongside Michael Pickering (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, London Palladium; Starlight Express, Germany) as Mellors.
Further casting includes Zoe Rogers (42nd Street, Theatre Royal Drury Lane) as Hilda, Jake Halsey-Jones (Hamilton, Victoria Palace Theatre) as Tommy, Sam Kipling (All-Male Pirates of Penzance, Palace Theatre) as war hero Sir Clifford and Emma Lindars (Groundhog Day, The Old Vic; Made in Dagenham, Adelphi Theatre) as Mrs Bolton, Clifford’s nurse.
Composer John Robinson commented: “It’s been a dream not only to have a production in the West End but to bring it to a wider audience through film and a streaming platform. Lady Chatterley’s story is still so resonant today.”
Infused with a soaring score by composer John Robinson (Behind the Iron Mask, Duchess Theatre; Closer to the Sun, Harold Pinter Theatre) and book by Phil Willmott (Once Upon a Time At the Adelphi; Relativity: The Einstein Musical), Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a beautiful reimagining of the classic text.
The stage adaptation is directed by the award-winning Sasha Regan (Blondel, Union Theatre; All-Male Pirates of Penzance, UK and International tours). The production also features intricate production design by Andrew Exeter (High Fidelity, Turbine Theatre; Scaramouche Jones, Stream.Theatre), with costume design by Jasmine Swan (Animal Farm, Royal & Derngate).
