Forget what you know about the religious text. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone team up with Robert Stone to create this sensational show. The Book of Mormon satirises Mormonism, but this musical will always have a place in your heart. The shocking musical follows two missionaries sent to Uganda to spread Mormonism throughout the tribes. They've injected plenty of shocking humour into the musical, as well as hilariously titled songs like “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream,” “All American Prophet,” and “Tomorrow is a Latter Day.”
In a five-star The Book of Mormon review, our critic said: “It is cleverly written and extremely well-produced, and the excellent, energetic performances give the impression that the cast are loving every minute of it. It is enormously enjoyable, and the laughs keep coming even when the story-line seems about to run out of steam.” Head two by two to the Prince of Wales Theatre today with The Book of Mormon tickets.
For the first time in forever journey to Arendelle in this icy Disney adventure. Adapted from Disney's 2013 film, Frozen brings the beloved story to the stage with an array of songs, storytelling, and plenty of snowflakes. Join Anna on her quest to find her sister Elsa and save the kingdom from an enternal winter. Enjoy all your favourite songs from the film like "Do You Want To Build a Snowman?" and "Let It Go," alongside new stage creations like "Hygge" and "Colder By the Minute."
In a five-star review, our critic said: "The legendary ice queen likely feels at home in the completely redone Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which feels positively palatial with vaulted ceilings, detailed frescos, and golden accents. All it takes for a journey to the kingdom of Arendelle is a step inside its doors, or rather, gates. Add to that an expanded and updated story and additional music and magic, and Frozen seems to have found its ideal home in the West End, where it deserves to stay for many years to come."
You'll go crazy for this dazzling revival starring Olivier Award nominee Charlie Stemp. All wealthy banker Bobby Child dreams of is to become a dancer. When his mother sends him to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theatre's mortgage, he meets the owner's daughter, Polly. In a bid to win her heart, he ends up rallying the enthusiastic townsfolk behind him to show them that the show must go on.
In a five star review on London Theatre, our critic said: "Who could ask for anything more? No, really – who could emerge from this dazzlingly staged, astonishingly performed, gold-standard, shimmering dream of a show without walking on air? Susan Stroman's Crazy For You is pure musical theatre heaven."
Sit down and rock the boat with tickets for Guys & Dolls this Black Friday. This immersive revival of Guys & Dolls follows Nathan Detroit, a Manhattan gambler who needs to find a new location for his crap shooting games. He’s helped by Sky Masterson, who takes a chance on Nathan, settling their deal on a bet: Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take a woman of his choosing on a date. But as they meet their “doll,” Sarah Brown, the odds of falling in love go down until it’s almost inevitable.
In a five-star review, our critic raves: "Guys & Dolls is that rare show in which the book is the equal of the score, and this production so joyfully lands all of Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling’s zingers and larger-than-life, deliciously named characters, while also giving them dimensionality."
Don't miss the chance to see this new musical, adaptated from Audrey Niffenegger's bestselling 2003 novel, with music and lyrics by the award-winning Joss Stone and Dave Stewart. Henry, a man with an unusual genetic disorder that causes involuntary time travelling, battles to be with his soulmate, Clare, across the ages. As their love endures, time continually tears them apart, testing their relationship like never before.
In a statement to London Theatre, playwright Lauren Gunderson said: "It's a real joy to reframe the story for the stage. I am always drawn to a big, complex, emotional, brainy, surprising, edgy romance. And The Time Traveller's Wife has all of those elements in abundance."
Don't miss this classic story following singer Deloris Van Cartier as she takes refuge in a convent as part of a witness protection program. Her time with the nuns of Saint Katherine's Convent inspires them to find their voices, stand tall, and sing out loud and proud. Originally played by Whoopi Goldberg in the 1992 film, the Sister Act musical, featuring songs like “Take Me To Heaven,” “How I Got the Calling,” and “Spread the Love Around,” brings gospel-infused joy to the stage.
In a five-star review for London Theatre, our critic said: "“It’s a classic, jubilant story of the power of community and coming together set to rollicking music and full of humour and dancing. Tim Mitchell’s lighting makes you feel like you’re at a gospel concert."
See the stage adaptation of Henry Fraser's inspirational autobiography, The Little Big Things. Henry was a passionate sportsman until a life-changing diving accident left him tetraplegic. He and his family had to adapt to a completely different way of living. Against all expectations, Henry displayed immense courage and resilience, surpassing projections for his recovery. He refused to surrender to the challenges, emerging as a highly successful artist, motivational speaker, and bestselling author.
In a four-star review, our critic said: "The show puts disability movingly and unapologetically centre stage in a venue whose commitment to accessibility and outreach is everywhere evident."
