Actor and singer Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman) introduces a film that has inspired her. Powell and Pressburger’s classic, loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, is hailed by directors including Scorsese, Spielberg and Coppola as one of the all-time greatest films. Filmed in glorious Technicolor, Shearer stars as a ballet dancer who joins a prestigious company and must decide between her career and her relationship with a young composer.
Keala Settle appears in & Juliet at the Shaftesbury Theatre until Saturday 18 June.
