“We used to live here, Angel. I sold the rink. It’s coming down!”
The Tony award-winning musical The Rink skates into Southwark Playhouse for a strictly limited season from May 2018, for its first London revival in almost 20 years.
With an irresistible score by the legendary Tony and Olivier Award-Winning John Kander and Fred Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret) and exhilarating book by Tony Award-winning Terrence McNally (Ragtime, Kiss of the Spiderwoman), The Rink originally premiered on Broadway in 1984 starring Chita Rivera and Liza Minnelli.
Anna, an Italian housewife who runs a roller-skating rink on the Eastern coast of America, is about to sell it to developers until her estranged daughter, Angel, returns after a long absence, hoping to save the rink and patch things up with her mother.
Bursting with showstopping songs, including Colored Lights, Chief Cook and Bottle Washer & Don’t “Ah Ma” Me, The Rink stars Caroline O’Connor (Moulin Rouge, Broadway’s Anastasia and Mack & Mabel) and Gemma Sutton (The Go-Between & Gypsy)
