The team at mtp is looking to bring to fruition a play which has not been on the British stage since 1982.
Windy City is a musical in two acts based on The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur.
It won a raft of awards when it premiered more than 30 years ago starring Amanda Redman and Dennis Waterman but hasn’t been shown since.
Producer Matthew Townshend had an opportunity to meet with the writer Tony MacCauley, who wrote the music for the show, earlier this year.
MacCauley, whose best-known songs include Baby Now That I’ve Found You and Build Me Up Buttercup, handed Matthew Townshend the only existing copy of the music and script and the pair want to work together to see it brought back to the British stage.
