‘A BLITZY ROMANCE OF GIN, GENTS, GARTER BELTS AND TERRIFIC SONGS!’ The Times An intimate underground cabaret club opens in the heart of London. A saucy new star shines under the spotlight. Two men struggle to bring their illicit love out of the shadows. The war-torn capital has never been so revealing! Welcome to the Glitz of the Blitz; where showgirls, secrets and scandal abound. A world where aristocrats jostle with black-market spivs, songwriters take to the streets and nothing is quite as it seems. Maggie Brown, an aspiring singer and her best friend George Nowodny, a songwriter and Jewish refugee, perform a dazzling act at the newest night club in town, owned by wealthy socialite and RAF war-hero, Sir Frank Worthington-Blythe. Maggie’s beau Tom Connor, paves the way for the sexy and charismatic ‘Miss Nightingale’ to be born, and the musical duo quickly find themselves with a West-End hit! However, what the leading lady doesn’t know, is that George and Sir Frank are hiding a secret and as Miss Nightingale’s success grows, so does a forbidden love between the two men! Miss Nightingale, the brand-new British musical, receives its West-End premiere at The Theatre at the Hippodrome Casino following five sold-out UK tours and a headline season at The Vaults in 2017.

Miss Nightingale Arvostelut
"Matthew Bugg’s music and lyrics brilliantly evoke 1940s Britain… beautifully moving… a well-told and captivating love story"
"It’s theatrical roots spread from Kander and Ebb’s ‘Cabaret’ with a dash of ‘Design For Living’, and touches of Rattigan angst… The book is good, the story absorbing…the songs are terrific."
"Witty, entertaining, wonderfully stylish… miss ‘Miss Nightingale’ and miss out!"
"This is a brave, original show: and it rewards in a subtle way."
Musical Theatre Review
"This is more than just a spectacle; it’s a moving, funny and grounded tale of taboos and prejudice in Britain during the Second World War"
