What a way to bow out! The first photos of Sweet Charity, the farewell production of the Donmar Warehouse‘s long-serving Artistic Director Josie Rourke, have been released – and they look simply stunning.

The musical stars Anne-Marie Duff as Charity, alongside Arthur Darvill as Oscar, and tells the story of hopeless romantic and dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine. But just as she starts to give up on love, she meets Oscar, who soon reignites Charity’s faith in love once again.

With a star-studded cast, the show signifies a fond farewell for Josie once the curtain comes down on this production’s final show on 8 June.

Take a first look at the production below (all photos credited to Johan Persson), and snap up tickets via the Donmar Warehouse website.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
