The RinkAward-winning musical The Rink - originally premiered on Broadway in 1984 with Chita Rivera and Liza Minelli - is given its first London revival in 20 years in 2018. Gemma Sutton (who starred opposite Imelda Staunton in Gypsy) plays Angel, daughter of Anna, played by Caroline O'Connor, in the Southwark Playhouse production. It tells the story of an Italian housewife who runs a roller-skating rink on the Eastern coast of American. As she's about to sell the rink to developers, her estranged daughter, Angel, returns after a long period away in the hope to save the rink and make amends with her mother. The show features a score by Tony and Olivier and Award-winning John Kander and Fred Ebb.
