Caroline, or Change Tickets

20 Nov 2018 - 2 Mar 2019

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Musical and with performances that'll take your breath away, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE is an imaginative and moving story of strength, revolution and hope. With a “voice full of raw soul that shreds the heart, and sets it soaring” (Times, *****), don’t miss a career-defining central performance from SHARON D. CLARKE in the five-star musical which changes everything.

Louisiana, 1963. Revolution is in the air, though not so much for Caroline, the poorly paid maid toiling endlessly in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household.

Written by Tony Kushner (Angels in America), composed by Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) and directed by Michael Longhurst (Amadeus), this sensational five-star musical transfers to the Playhouse Theatre following sell-out runs in Chichester and Hampstead.
