New musical Your Lie in April is heading to the West End for a 12-week run this summer. The musical will open at the Harold Pinter Theatre on 28 June.

Your Lie in April follows teenage piano prodigy Kōsei Arima, who finds himself unable to play music after his mother's death. But when he strikes up a friendship with violinist Kaori Miyazono, she slowly encourages him to perform again.

The musical has music by multi-Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award nominated Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (Bonnie & Clyde, Jekyll & Hyde, Death Note The Musical) with lyrics by Carly Robyn Green and Tracy Miller.

The Your Lie in April manga, published in 2011, has sold over 7.5 million copies in 17 countries. It was adapted into a 22-part anime TV series in 2014, a Japanese live-action film in 2016, and a Japanese stage production in 2017. Wildhorn’s musical opened in Tokyo in 2022, followed by a Japan tour. This production is its English language premiere.

Wildhorn said: “Your Lie In April is a love letter to the beautiful power of music - to heal, to take us through life’s adventures, to create our most precious memories… I’ve never had more fun than creating this music!”

Cast and creative team are yet to be announced.
