Sheridan Smith prepares for Bridget Jones: The Musical with a little help from Lily Allen

Posted by Dean Piper On June 5th, 2011

I’m super excited about Sheridan Smith’s career right now. The star’s just finishing her run in Flare Path alongside Sienna Miller on the West End and is then starring in her first film. But I’m especially excited to hear about her next West End role – playing Bridget Jones on the West End in the musical of Helen Fielding’s book. Sources tell me the star has done the read through and work shopping for the role that will likely open next year in London. Featuring an original score written by Lily Allen the star confirmed she was in talks. She told me: “I’ve done the workshop and it went well. Lily has done an amazing job with it.”

Sheridan will conquer the world – you mark my words.
