Adapted from John Cassavetes' legendary 1977 film, Opening Night follows Myrtle Gordon, a famous but troubled actress, as she attemps to stage her comeback.

The incomparable Sheridan Smith returns to musical theatre in the world premiere of Opening Night from the creative minds of Rufus Wainwright, one of the most acclaimed songwriters of his generation, and celebrated director Ivo van Hove.

The meeting between the faded star and her die-hard devotee takes a sinister turn, and soon Gordon's personal termiol forces everyone within the company to deliver the performance of their lives. Can the theatre troupe perform the roles needed, or will they crack under pressure?
