Roxanne Couch will make her West End stage debut in the premiere of ‘I Could Use A Drink’ at the Garrick Theatre

Roxanne Couch (‘The Adams Family’ UK Tour) is replacing the previously announced Hiba Elchikhe in Drew Gasparini’s ‘I Could Use A Drink’ for it’s one night premiere in the West End at the Garrick Theatre on Monday 2 August.

The show’s producers said: “Losing Hiba is very sad, but we wish her all the best playing Pritti Pasha in ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’. Paramount to us all  is keeping cast, creative teams and audience members safe in all productions lighting up the West End again. With care, our industry will soon be back to where it was pre-COVID.”

Also appearing are the previously announced Ahmed Hamad (‘Rent’), Billy Nevers (‘& Juliet’/’Jesus Christ Superstar’), Callum Henderson (The Show Must Go On!), Caroline Kay (‘Daisy’/‘The Space Between’), Luke Bayer (‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’/’Soho Cinders’), Maiya Quansah-Breed(‘SIX’, ‘Rent’), Olivia Lallo (GSA 2020 graduate) and Tom Francis (‘Rent’).

‘I Could Use A Drink, an eclectic mix of poignant, hilarious, and progressive contemporary musical theatre, celebrating the chaos and beauty of youth, was created as a US studio album using Broadway’s freshest and most exciting new talents. Now for its UK West End stage  premiere, producers Liam Gartland and Alex Conder reimagine its cutting edge musical theatre songs with some of the West End’s stars of present and the future.
