You know Calamity Jane, the old 1950s musical tale of the Wild West and the search for love? Doris Day learning to be ladylike… Well, it’s given a hell of a shake-up in this pared-back, madcap, hilarious rendition. Jane is all swagger – a rough rider, full of defiance – but, when it comes to love, she’s calamity in more ways than one.

This was a smash hit at the Hayes Theatre last year. There’s a bar on stage, a single piano, and Virginia Gay giving an un-be-liev-able performance. We already know this one is brilliant. Don’t miss it.

Presented in association with One Eyed Man Productions with Neglected Musicals and Hayes Theatre Co
