Evening Standard Theatre & Critic’s Circle Awards for
BEST MUSICAL 1999
At the Church Hill Theatre, Morningside Road, Edinburgh
11 - 17 February 2007
This musical celebrates the rags-to-riches and back to rags story of Viv Nicholson - the working-class Yorkshire lass who, in 1961, won a fortune on the Football Pools.The story includes everything from comedy to tragedy. A musical score full of memorable tunes and sharp, witty lyrics. This, together with the modern lesson in morality, that money does not necessarily always bring you either love or happiness, makes for a warm, nostalgic musical with Yorkshire directness and grit, that follows the northern musical tradition of shows like “Billy Elliot” and “Blood Brothers”.
