Katherine Kelly joins City Of Angels

First Published 5 September 2014, Last Updated 5 September 2014

Former Coronation Street star Katherine Kelly will make her Donmar Warehouse debut later this year in much-anticipated musical City Of Angels.

Kelly, who played Becky Granger in the long-running ITV soap, joins the previously announced Samantha Barks, Rosalie Craig and Hadley Fraser in the film noir musical that begins its run on 5 December.

The Mr Selfridge actress, who will play Carla/Alaura in the musical that leaps between fiction and reality, may be best known for her screen work but has previously appeared in productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre.

Kelly is joined in the cast by musical theatre regulars Tam Mutu (Les Misérables, Love Never Dies), Peter Polycarpou (The Pajama Game, Sweeney Todd) and Rebecca Trehearn, who can currently be seen in Dogfight at Southwark Playhouse.

City Of Angels is the tale of a New York novelist whose dream comes true when he is asked to transform the private detective of his novels into a silver screen hero. But LA has many temptations and while his film plays in black and white, his new life becomes all too colourful.

The cast is completed by Nick Cavaliere, Cameron Cuffe, Marc Elliott, Adam Fogerty, Kadiff Kirwan, Sandra Marvin, Mark Penfold, Jennifer Saayeng, Jo Servi and Tim Walton.

City Of Angels is the third production in the Donmar Warehouse’s autumn season. It follows current hit My Night With Reg, which runs until 27 September, and the all-female production of Henry IV led by Harriet Walter.
