The Rink – Let’s Roll !
Chicago and Cabaret are just two of the hugely successful musicals that were written by John Kander and Fred Ebb. While their work The Rink is not well known, it is still an exciting show. The hit production is returning to London at the Southwark Playhouse (from 25th May), 20 years after its West End premiere.
Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera starred in the 1984 Broadway premiere. The show tells the story of an estranged daughter, Angel, returning home with the hope of smoothing things over with her mother, Anna, and saving the family roller rink. Director Adam Lenson says: ‘The Rink is as innovative as it is underrated and truly pushes the form of musical theatre.’
