An all new production of a much loved musical, a premiere of a stage version of a vintage film and a war drama make up the highlights of the new season at The Curve in Leicester.

Musical Legally Blonde and Wipers, about the contribution of south Asian soldiers in the First World War, are part of the spring season while Pixie Lott stars as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The award-winning West End and Broadway smash hit musical comedy Legally Blonde, directed by the theatre’s artistic director Nikolai Foster, opens on April 14.

Nikolai also directs the hotly anticipated premiere of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, opening on March 10 and running until March 12.

The classic tale written by Truman Capote is being given a new lease of life as a stage play in a new production starring the multi award-winning Pixie Lott as Holly Golightly.

Nikolai said: “It’s been an exhilarating first few months at Curve.

“This is an ambitious programme of work, introducing more plays to our repertoire than ever before.”

Continuing Curve’s commitment to new work and developing diverse audiences, Wipers, written by Ishy Din, is inspired by the real life story of Khuddadad Khan, the first South Asian soldier to be awarded a Victoria Cross for his extraordinary bravery at the First Battle of Ypres. It runs from April 8-23.

The new season brings with it an eclectic and diverse programme of visiting work including Mike Bartlett’s multi award-winning new play King Charles III from January 26 to 30.

Green Day’s critically acclaimed musical American Idiot opens its national tour at Curve from March 19 to 26.

Other highlights include the return of Dave’s Leicester’s Comedy Festival and an award-winning adaptation of Lord of The Flies, both arriving in Leicester on February.
