Susan will be making a surprise appearance at certain venues. This will be her first performance in the UK on stage since the Britain's Got Talent tour in 2009. She said: "I am thrilled to be a part of the musical about my life story and very much looking forward to stepping on stage and performing with the cast. It is an honest portrayal of my life and has been a cathartic process to be involved in."
