Italian cabaret legend and quick-change artist Arturo Brachetti, best known internationally for his award-winning signature piece A Man with a Thousand Faces, will bring his new one-man show to the West End this autumn. Arturo Brachetti – Change, which is written and directed by The Right Size’s Sean Foley, runs at the Garrick Theatre for a limited season from 26 October 2009 (previews from 19 October) to 3 January 2010.
