With a flurry of transfers arriving from Broadway, I've been wondering where the new British musicals are in the West End; but be careful what you wish for. While the new Broadway shows are all variously progressive - from telling true stories in the marvellous just-opened Come from Away and a principally female-led creative team to tell a story of female empowerment in Waitress to another story of teenage suicide and social media promotion in the forthcoming Dear Evan Hansen - Only Fools and...

Only Fools and Horses - The Musical Information
We’re all gonna be millionaires! Feel pukka with the Trotters of Peckham in this hit British musical. Don't miss Only Fools and Horses in London before it closes on 29 April.
First broadcast on BBC in 1981, Only Fools and Horses quickly became a landmark British comedy show. David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst played the lovable but daft Peckham brothers: Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter and Rodney Trotter. Over the seven series, they tried to get rich quick with a number of schemes devised through their company, Trotters Independent Trading Co. Their yellow three-wheeler Reliant Regal is a motoring icon and can be spotted on the odd road across Britain if you’re lucky…
Only Fools and Horses contained some of British comedy’s funniest gags: Del Boy’s iconic fall through the bar sketch, the brothers’ run through the streets dressed as Batman and Robin, or any scene involving their friend Trigger, to name a few. The Only Fools and Horses musical brings these skits to life, with plenty of new material for the Trotters to sink their teeth into. Check out the top moments in Only Fools and Horses.
What is the Only Fools and Horses musical about?
Grow old with the Only Fools and Horses gang at Mandela House and beyond. The story revolves around Del Boy looking for love, Rodney preparing for his marriage to Cassandra, and Grandad taking stock on his life. The musical celebrates the best of Cockney London life, and puts these legendary characters onto the West End stage for the very first time, lovely jubbly!
