Take That singer Gary Bar­low has teamed up with his friend Tim Firth – the writer of the film Cal­en­dar Girls – to cre­ate a new mu­si­cal, The Girls, at the Phoenix Theatre (from 30 Jan). Bar­low, who has writ­ten songs for the show such as Hello York­shire I’m a Vir­gin, says: ‘I could hear the mu­sic straight away, and thought it should be a mas­sive part of the story. It takes the show to a new level.’ The mu­si­cal is in­spired by the true story of a group of York­shire women who posed nude for a Women’s In­sti­tute char­ity cal­en­dar, to raise money for a me­mo­rial to a friend’s hus­band, who died from cancer.
