Vincent Price's 1968 musical Darling of the Day is reborn

Darling of the Day tells the story of a celebrated artist yearning for anonymity. He fakes his own death and assumes his valet's identity but carries on painting - which means that his art mysteriously keeps reappearing.

The show is based on Arnold Bennett's The Great Adventure, and was adapted by Jule Styne (Gypsy, Funny Girl), E.Y. Harburg (Finian’s Window, Wizard of Oz) and Nunnally Johnson (The Grapes of Wrath, Roxie Hart).

The 1968 show, which originally starred Vincent Price and Patricia Routledge, is being resurrected as part of the Sadler's Well's Lost Musicals season in London, from 22 August to 19 September.

So, if you're in London... this is a real trip down memory lane.

For tickets and information, go to the Sadler's Wells website.
