Follow Rusty, a humble steam engine determined to prove himself as the fastest locomotive on the tracks. But he’s going up against more modern diesel and electric trains, Greaseball and Electra. As the competition heats up, Rusty grapples with self-doubt and insecurities, but with the support of friends and the love of Pearl, an elegant first-class coach, he learns that belief in oneself is the ultimate fuel.
Originally opening in London at the Apollo Victoria in 1984, Starlight Express ran for an impressive 7,400 performances. However, the longest-running production of the musical is currently in Germany, where it has captivated audiences since 1988 at the purpose-built Starlighthalle. This production holds the Guinness World Record for hosting the most visitors to a musical in a single theatre, with over 19 million people welcomed since 1988.
Starlight Express is set to a toe-tapping ‘80s pop-rock soundtrack by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Richard Stilgoe. Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, The Little Big Things) directs, working alongside set designer Tim Hatley, video designer Andrzej Goulding, costume designer Gabriella Slade, lighting designer Howard Hudson, sound designer Gareth Owen, and musical supervisor Matthew Brind to bring this innovative production to life.
It’s full steam ahead in this high-speed, roller-skating extravaganza. Book Starlight Express tickets on London Theatre.
