Masterclass, the Broadway play that hits the west end from January 2012 will now see Dianne Pilkington star opposite Tyne Daly.
Daly and Pilkington will be joined in the play by Naomi O'Connell, Gerard Carey, Garrett Sorenson and Jeremy Cohen, who will make his West End debut reprising his role from the Broadway run of the play.
The award-winning play from Terrence Mcnally takes the audience to one of Callas's famous master classes where, late in her career, she dares what will be the next generation to make the same sacrifices to attempt to rise to the same dizzy heights that made her the most controversial and celebrated singer of her time.
Dianne Pilkington will play the role of Sophie De Palma and was most recently seen on the west end stage in long-runner The 39 Steps but is arguably best known for her 9 month stint at the Apollo Victoria playing Glinda in musical Wicked. Her other stage credits include She Loves Me at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Cats and Beauty And The Beast on tour.
Masterclass will play at the Vaudeville Theatre in London from 21st January until 28th April 2012 and is directed by Stephen Wadsworth.
Theatre tickets in London to Masterclass and all productions at the Vaudeville Theatre are available to book securely through both BmyConcierge and Theatre Tickets London
