As you probably all know by now Fran has been offered and accepted the part of Lucy in Bill Kenwright's new Barry Manilow musical Can't Smile Without You which features around 30 of his greatest hits. 

The musical will be produced out of Bromley's Churchill theatre starting on Thursday 28th August ( 22 days) prior to going on tour details below, and is then due to hit the west end in 2009. 

The story centres around an aspiring young band who, on a visit to New York, come across an opportunity not to be missed - auditions for the latest reality TV show to find the next pop music sensation. When the TV company offers lead singer Tony a chance to appear on the show, the other band members give him their unconditional blessing. But before Tony can realise his dream, he is caught up in a tragic sequence of events which leaves him fighting for his life.

Left with no memory his dreams are all but shattered. His only hope lies in the power of the music he loves and his feelings for a girl he once knew called Mandy…
