Katherine Kingsley


The new musical charting the life of one of Britain’s most successful and enduringly popular singers will receive its world premiere in Bath.

This landmark musical is based on the authorised biography of Dusty Springfield by Vicki Wickham, and features a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey and what promises to be a career-defining performance from Katherine Kingsley.

Dusty celebrates the extraordinary and vivacious woman whose timeless voice immortalised her as “one of Britain's most successful female singers” (Daily Telegraph). Dusty Springfield’s global hits include I Only Want to Be with You, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me and Son of a Preacher Man. Her 1969 masterpiece Dusty In Memphis is considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

Multi award-winning Jonathan Harvey’s plays include Beautiful Thing. His extensive television writing includes Coronation Street and Gimme Gimme Gimme.

Katherine Kingsley is a three time Olivier Award nominee for her performances as Marlene Dietrich in Piaf; Lina Lamont in Singin' In The Rain and Helena in the West End production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Other West End credits include The 39 Steps and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Maria Friedman’s hugely acclaimed production of Merrily We Roll Along won Best Musical at the Oliver Awards 2014. She recently directed Stepping Out in Bath and in the West End.
