CLASSIC musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers stops off at Liverpool’s Empire Theatre this week.
Direct from the West End, it stars TV favourite Steven Houghton (Bugs, London’s Burning) and Susan McFadden, winner of ITV’s Grease is the Word.
Voted the third most popular musical of all time by BBC Radio 2 listeners, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a gloriously toe-tapping romp full of effervescent energy, dazzling dance routines and 16 smash hit showstoppers.
Houghton plays Adam Pontipee, the role created by Howard Keel in the famous film version.
Best known for playing the lead role of Ed in the BBC series Bugs and Greg Blake in London’s Burning, he’s played starring roles in West End shows including Desperately Seeking Susan, Blood Brothers, Martin Guerre, Cats and Spend Spend Spend, for which he received an Olivier nomination.
Susan McFadden, winner of ITV’s popular Saturday night entertainment series Grease is the Word and fresh from her West End starring role as Sandy in Grease, plays Milly Pontipee.
