Jessie Goes West End!
Just weeks after Jodie and Sarah made their West End stage debuts, Jessie is set to step out on a West End stage for the first time on 28th March.
I was fortunate enough to attend Jessie's opening night in 'A Little Night Music' at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Southwark last November, and the show quickly sold out it's entire run, concluding on 8th March.
Officially the fastest selling show in the venue's history, it has now transferred to the West End's Garrick Theatre and is scheduled to run from 28th March to 25th July.
Jessie has won much praise for her portrayal of Anne Egerman in this delightful Sondheim musical and at just 19, she is the youngest IDA contestant to appear in the West End.
It's a superb indication of the quality of the IDA finalists that four have already landed West End roles, while several others have roles in major touring productions.
Tickets are now on sale for 'A Little Night Music' at the Garrick and we want to congratulate Jessie and the rest of the cast on their momentous achievement.
