WOMAN OF THE YEAR

@41monkgate, York

Pick Me Up Theatre are proud to be staging the UK premiere of Kander and Ebb's Tony Award winning musical Woman of the Year – based on the classic movie starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.

The show – which starred Lauren Bacall when it opened on Broadway in 1981 and ran for two years – is packed with wonderful songs including One of the Boys, Sometimes a Day Goes By and The Grass is Always Greener.

It revolves around the stormy relationship between TV news personality Tess Harding and newspaper cartoonist Sam Craig and the conflicts between their careers and their marriage.

Kander and Ebb's musicals include Cabaret, Chicago and Kiss of the Spiderwoman – but this is the first time British audiences have had the chance to enjoy one their most melodious and witty shows.
