The on-going monstrous success of shows like Strictly Come Dancing and the X Factor needs no new perspective but what is surprising is that these days of cable and digital television have been able to support a number of successful imitators.
Partly, this is down to the craft of the programme makers but, mostly, it is a result of the unquenchable thirst of the viewing public who demand to 'engage' in contestants' 'journeys' for longer than just the run up to Christmas.
Sky1's original programming has often struggled to find a significant audience but Got to Dance, the show where hopefuls of all genres get the chance to impress a panel of three very likeable experts, has bucked the trend. The show has been a genuine ratings success and two of those judges, former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and West End star Adam Garcia, are transferring some of that dance magic to the London stage with the brand new show, Revolution.
Garcia and Wyatt will lead a cast of familiar faces in the show which will play Sundays only at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, from 6th May 6th to 10th June - just six performances.
The two will be joined by some of the most recognised dancers in the UK, from shows including Britain's Got Talent, Got To Dance and So You Think You Can Dance as well as leading dancers from tours including Take That, Cheryl Cole and The X Factor. A show for all the family, Revolution promises to be 'fast-paced and futuristic'.
We have tickets available now, priced from £13 for gallery seats to £46 for the best stalls - but be quick, they're expected to sell out in the shake of a money-maker.
