Classic rom-com, My Best Friend’s Wedding is being made into a musical and, although we’re not overly sure how it’s going to work, we are ruddy excited!

And feature icon pop anthems including, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again, I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself, Walk on By, I Say A Little Prayer and What’s New Pussycat.
The musical tells the story of fiery food critic romance-sceptic Julianne Potter. But when she hears that her former sweetheart Michael O’Neal is about to be married, she vows to win him back for good. But with perfect Kimmy in the way, it’s not as easy as she first thought.
Starring Alexandra Burke, who rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor and can currently be seen starring in the hit musical The Bodyguard, My Best Friend’s Wedding The Musical is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh.
