Lin Manuel-Miranda's epic musical detailing the life of Founding Father and revolutionary Alexander Hamilton won an unprecedented 11 Tony Awards, making it one of the most successful Broadway musicals in theatre history. Following events in Hamilton's life as a child through to assisting George Washington, the federalist papers and cabinet battles come alive to a hip-hop and R&B soundtrack written by Miranda, who also originated the lead role at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. In 2017, Hamilton has wowed audiences in London at the Victoria Palace Theatre where it's played since.
Moulin Rouge: The Musical is at the Piccadilly Theatre from November 2021, and we can-cannot wait to see it! Casting in the West End is to be announced, but we can't wait to be invited into a theatrical world where anything goes. In a review for New York Theatre Guide, Mark Shenton said "Moulin Rouge is a canvas of spectacle and emotion" and it's sure to do the same when it opens at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2021. Based on Baz Luhrmann's 2001 movie, the story of a lovesick writer and enchanting singer at the Moulin Rouge comes alive on stage, boasting over 70 songs in its eclectic soundtrack including Sia's 'Chandelier' and Madonna's 'Material Girl'

Breaking box office records on its Broadway opening, The Book of Mormon headed for the other side of the pond to spread the word of Elder Price and Elder Cunningham in 2013. Created by Avenue Q's Robert Lopez and South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the side-splittingly funny musical sees two missionaries attempt to convert Ugandans into Mormons with varying levels of success. With one of its characters named Nabulungi left as the brunt of name-related jokes, the quick wit and originality of The Book of Mormon saw the musical win four Olivier Awards in 2014 and continues to be one of the hottest shows around.
