For the comedian, playing Miss Hannigan has long been “a dream role” she never thought would come true. “But here we are and I have a newly found musical theatre-esque spring in my step,

“I hope people will leave the theatre feeling life is a little better and dreamier and jollier after watching it, as much as we feel that performing it,”

“Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some leg-warmers to put on.”

Previews at London’s Piccadilly Theatre on 23rd May.
