It has been seen by over 130 million people in 145 cities across 27 countries, and continues to play in its original form in both the West End, where it is the second longest running musical in history, and Broadway, where it boasts the title of the longest-running show.

Boasting an incredible cast of performers, audiences find themselves consistently drawn to the show time and time again, with a new generation of theatre lovers discovering the musical for the very first time.
