The Northern Echo: Here You Come Again set to head to Newcastle Theatre Royal this summer

Having enjoyed several successful performances across the US, Here You Come Again was originally written by multi-Emmy award-winning comedy and songwriter Bruce Vilanch with Gabriel Barre and writer and actor Tricia Paoluccio.

The show has now been adapted by acclaimed British screen and theatre writer Jonathan Harvey, known for writing hundreds of episodes of the popular soap Coronation Street and television sitcoms Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Beautiful People.

Director Gabriel Barre said: “We are so excited to bring this gem of a show to the UK, following its successful regional tour in America.

“Setting it in the UK with a brilliant new British actor playing the lead role of Kevin, along with a creative UK design team, gives us a chance to take a fresh approach to a story that features all of Dolly’s biggest hits, along with her wit and wisdom, which the world needs today, more than ever.”

With her wit, humour and charm, Dolly teaches her biggest fan a whole lot about life, love and how to pull yourself up by your bootstraps…even if your bootstraps don’t have rhinestones!

Here You Come Again is at Newcastle Theatre Royal Tuesday, June 18 until Saturday June, 22.
