Legendary Michael Crawford stars in the new musical The Go-Between at the Apollo Theatre

About The Go-Between

The Go-Between premiere arrives on stage at the Apollo TheatreMichael Crawford to star in new British musical. 

BAZ BAMIGBOYE: Maestro Michael Crawford is back! The production marks Crawford's return to the stage after most recently appearing in THE WIZARD OF OZ at the London Palladium. 

Michael Crawford plays Leo Colston, a man who can no longer hide from the memories of his past. Memories of the gloriously hot summer of 1900 and of his days spent in Norfolk come flooding back. Spending the holidays with the family of his school friend Marcus in their luxurious country home, the young Leo finds himself acting as the go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian and tenant-farmer Ted who are embroiled in a forbidden secret love affair. The innocent Leo gets caught up in the adult atmosphere of deceit and manipulation as he risks everything in this deeply moving coming of age story. The events of that summer and the devastating effects of love denied will shape his life forever.

Joining the previously announced Michael Crawford – with the multi Olivier and Tony-award winning star returning to London’s West End to play Leo Colston – will be Issy Van Randwyck. Renowned for her starring role in the celebrated cabaret group Fascinating Aida, Issy will play the role of Mrs Maudsley.

The iconic roles of Ted and Marian, the lovers who embark on a forbidden affair and for whom Leo acts as the go-between, will be taken by Stuart Ward, who played the lead ‘Guy’ in Once in both the UK and USA, and Gemma Sutton

The new Musical is the screenplay adaptation of the 1971 romantic drama film, where it won the Palme D'or at the Cannes film Festival. A month later, the Queen and Queen Mother arrived at the ABC Cinema in Norwich to attend the premiere. It is the first stage adaptation to show in London.

The Go-Between’s composer/lyricist is Richard Taylor, who most recently composed Flowers For Mrs Harris, the world premiere of which is to be given at Sheffield Crucible Theatre. The production is directed by Roger Haines (The Girls, by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth) having been adapted by David Wood (Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom), who is also the co-lyricist. 
Casting is to be announced.

Beautiful, elegant and haunting - a gorgeous retelling of this classic tale of very young love. Michael Crawford is spell-bindingly wonderful.

I loved it! Thought the production excellent and wonderful to see Michael Crawford back in action! Wonderful singing - the voices and harmonies were great. This was a matinee - shame the theatre was only half full!

22 September

We di not think the show lived up to expectations. The singing was not inspiring and the whole play was neither a musical nor a play. In all we were quite disappointed and felt that we did not get value for money.
