West End regulars Fra Fee, Lucy Williamson and Madalena Alberto are to star in THE FIX, the very first production at the brand new Union Theatre.Featuring book and lyrics by John Dempsey and music by Dana P. Rowe, the musical catapults audiences into the chaotic (and all-too familiar!) arena of American politics.When the most popular presidential candidate dies between his mistress’s thighs, his status-starved widow, Violet (Lucy Williamson), decides that if she can’t be the wife of the president, she’ll be his mother… Thrusting her lacklustre son Cal (Fra Fee) into the spotlight, Violet is determined to create the perfect politician at any cost in this brutally comedic tale of lust, greed and scandal. With a rock-fuelled score, laced with scandalous lyrics, the team behind The Witches of Eastwick deliver a dark and spellbinding ride through the American political machine.The Fix, produced by Atomicus Entertainment and directed by Michael Strassen, the award-winning director of Billy, Assassins and Pacific Overtures, will open for a 4-week run at the new Union Theatre from Wednesday 13 July 2016.
