Glee actress stars in McQueen play
Glee star Dianna Agron will make her UK stage debut in a new play about the life of designer Alexander McQueen.
The US actress, who played Quinn Fabray in the hit TV show, will play a woman obsessed with the designer who committed suicide in 2010.
Bluestone 42 star Stephen Wight will play McQueen in the show of the same name at St James Theatre in London from May 12.
The cast also includes former EastEnder Tracy-Ann Oberman who will play McQueen's friend and fellow designer Isabella Blow.
The play, by James Phillips, is set on a single night in London when Agron's character breaks into McQueen's home to steal a dress but ends up criss-crossing London with him.
McQueen, w ho was known as Lee to friends and family, grew up in the city's East End.

He was aged 40 when he killed himself the day before his mother's funeral after struggling with depression.
The fashion house that bears McQueen's name remains hugely influential and t he Duchess of Cambridge's intricately decorated wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.
