BETWIXT! Starring Ashleigh Gray, Steven Webb and Benedict Slater Heading To The West End This Summer

Steven Webb, Ashleigh Gray and newcommer Benedict Salter are to head the cast of Betwixt!, a new British comedy musical written and directed by Ian McFarlane, which is getting a West End season at Trafalgar Studios 2 from Tuesday 26th July to Saturday 20th August. 

 In modern day New York, writer Bailey - suffering writer's block - and his roommate Cooper Fitzgerald are catapulted head first into a strange enchanted world. Their arrival fulfils a prophecy that tells of a brave hero and a great queen and they are tasked with searching out a fading daytime TV star who is the only hope for saving a pregnant princess from losing the throne... Sex-crazed nymphs, hunchbacks, cross-dressing mutes, dancing reporters, enchantresses (of the evil-world-dominating variety) and a disembodied head with a Bavarian accent are teamed with sitcom-styled dialogue and a toe-tapping score in a truly funny musical comedy.

Steven Webb is Cooper, a flamboyant out of work actor who gets dragged along on this crazy trip with his new roommate Bailey. Webb’s stage roles include The Mamet Plays at the Arcola, new musical Departure Lounge at Waterloo East, Alan Bennet’s The History Boys  in the West End and on tour, Shit-Mix at Trafalgar Studios and at Christmas played the title role in Dick Whittington at the Lyric Hammersmith. On TV he appeared in The Inbetweeners, Bad Girls, The Bill, and Holby City. 

Ashleigh Gray (Miranda) is best known  for covering and playing the coveted role of Elphaba in Wicked at the Apollo Victoria. Her other credits include Taboo, Grease and the Notes From New York concert series.

Bailey is played by Benedict Salter, making his West End debut.
