Umbrellas of Cherbourg Synopsis
Half Price Tickets
It's 1957 and we are in the French port of Cherbourg . Jazz, sailors and vin rouge dance deliciously in the air, and l'amour laps against the shores of the heart! Boy (young auto mechanic Guy Fouchier) loves girl (umbrella shop sales assistant Geneviève Emery). They whisper "je t'aime" with the certainty of youth, but when war comes between them, Geneviève has to choose between waiting for her homespun hero or plumping for the dashing diamond dealer asking for her hand... quel dilemme! Oh, and did we mention the baby that's on its way? Zut alors!
Based on the film by JACQUES DEMY, with the score of Grammy and Oscar-winning composer MICHEL LEGRAND (Yentl, Windmills of your Mind), featuring two of his greatest songs "Watch What Happens" and "I Will Wait for You", and lyrics translated by SHELDON HARNICK (Fiddler on the Roof), KNEEHIGH's new production of THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOUG sails into the Gielgud Theatre following a limited run at Curve Leicester. The outstanding cast includes Olivier Award-winning Joanna Riding, international cabaret sensation "Meow Meow", Carly Bawden, Gareth Charlton, Andrew Durand, Cynthia Erivo, Dominic Marsh, Aki Omoshaybi, Laura Brydon and Matt Wilman.
With KNEEHIGH back in the West End you can expect romance, glamour and naughtiness, and with THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG you can be certain of it...! Voila!
