The musical is based upon the 1935 film of the same name starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the roles of Jerry and Dale, with music by Irving Berlin. The musical stage show was performed 76 years after the original film following long protracted negotiations with Irving Berlin's estate.
In Top Hat, we follow the celebrated American Stage performer Jerry Travers (James Forster) as he arrives in London to appear in a stage show from producer Horace Hardwick (Andrew Fearon).
