News: Dolly Parton’s New Musical Here You Come Again Announces UK Tour

Here You Come Again will embark on a major UK tour, bringing together, for the first time ever, all of Dolly Parton’s biggest hits in a rollicking and joyful new musical, fully authorised by Dolly herself.

With several successful runs across the Unites States, Here You Come Again was originally written by multi-Emmy award-winning comedy and songwriter Bruce Vilanch with Gabriel Barre (who also directs) and write and actor Tricia Paoluccio. As well as co-writing the production, Paoluccio also stars as Dolly. It has now been adapted by acclaimed British TV and theatre writer Jonathan Harvey.

 Packed with the iconic songs Jolene, 9 to 5, Islands in the Stream, I Will Always Love You, Here You Come Again and more, this lively and touching new musical tells the story of a diehard fan whose imagined version of international icon Dolly Parton gets him through trying times. With her wit, humour and charm, Dolly teaches him a whole lot about life, love and how to pull yourself up by your bootstraps…even if your bootstraps don’t have rhinestones! This is one musical that is sure to make you smile.

Simon Friend Entertainment, in co-production with Leeds Playhouse, is delighted to announce that following its UK Premiere in Leeds from Saturday 11 May to Saturday 8 June, Here You Come Again then tours the UK.
