About Ride

The extraordinary story of the first woman to cycle around the world. Multi-award-winning new musical RIDE returns to London this summer in a “sublime, pitch-perfect production” (WhatsOnStage) with a “stunning original score” (EverythingTheatre) following its critically acclaimed, sell out run last year.

It’s 1894 and as the bicycle is sweeping change across America, Annie Londonderry has a wager to settle: can a woman cycle across the world? 4 continents in 15 months: easy! Except she’s only been on a bicycle twice. From moneymaking masquerades as a Harvard professor to hunting tigers with German royalty, Annie spins the media into a frenzy with tales of her thrilling escapades. But with time running out and press coverage spiralling, she soon discovers that no matter how many miles she rides, the secrets of her past are never far behind.

Hold on to your handlebars and join Annie on the journey of a lifetime in this ‘sublime, pitch perfect’ (WhatsOnStage) new musical that will leave you breathless! Liv Andrusier returns to the saddle straight from her win at the OffWestEnd Awards for her “barnstorming performance” (The Stage) as Annie Londonderry in this five-star production that “ticks literally all of the boxes” (Musical Theatre Musings).

Note: The 2.30pm performance on August 10th will be a special parent & baby performance in a more relaxed environment.

Entertaining, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if you want to support a brilliant new musical, with some wonderfully catchy songs and an interesting story.

Don’t see it if you find it difficult to be immersed in a show where 2 actors play a multitude of different characters, however fantastic they are!
