Sheridan Smith to star as Shirley Valentine on stage
12 December 2022 | By Vandana Lohia
Sheridan Smith, a British icon, actress and singer, has recently been announced to star in Willy Russel's one-woman show Shirley Valentine. Lauded as “The Greatest Theatre Star of her Generation” by The Evening Standard, Sheridan Smith is easily the best choice to play the strong-willed Liverpudlian lass. Shirley Valentine will open at the Duke of York's Theatre in early 2023. The recently announced play has already extended its run by three weeks due to the overwhelmingly positive response. So, book your tickets to witness Shirley Valentine on stage while you still can!
