The Umbrellas of Cherbourg has long been a firm Cellardoor favourite thanks to its colourful setting of France in 1957 and an adorable performance by Catherine Deneuve. So naturally we were intrigued when we heard that Jacques Demy's film had been adapted into a stage production.
The production opened last week at the Gielgud Theatre following a limited run at Curve Leicester. We're looking forward to seeing if this English-translated stage adaptation lives up to the magic of the original film. Though if the publicity shots are anything to go by, it certainly looks set to bring the vibrancy of fifties France to London's Shaftesbury Avenue, so we're sure we'll have fun nonetheless....
