Full casting is complete for Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Passion at Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester this May.
Dean John-Wilson will play Giorgio, the man who finds himself at the heart of a passionate love affair, alongside Olivier nominated Kelly Price as Clara.
They join Olivier Award winner and musical theatre icon Ruthie Henshall.
Passion features the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim, whose death rocked the theatre community in November last year. His output includes the classics West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Company and Follies.
With longtime collaborator James Lapine, he produced the award-winning Sunday in the Park with George and Into The Woods.
Passion runs from May 5 to June 5.
