We’re sailing back on the S. S. America, as Anything Goes returns to the Barbican in 2022. Anything Goes tickets are available on London Theatre now. Anything Goes is a musical set on a cruise liner heading from New York to London. It’s not all smooth sailing for those on board the S. S. American though. Sometimes destiny and the path to true love needs a bit of guidance, including a crew of singing and dancing sailors and disguises. Will stowaway Billy Crocker and heiress Hope Harcourt have their happy ending? "Anything Goes" on board this ship. The London musical revival of Anything Goes was first staged on Broadway in 2011, starring Sutton Foster as Reno Sweeney. On Broadway, Anything Goes won three Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. Anything Goes then played a summer run at the Barbican in 2021, and the show was extended numerous times due to audience demand. The 2022 Anything Goes London production stars Kerry Ellis as Reno Sweeney, and Bonnie Langford as Evangeline Harcourt. Denis Lawson will play Moonface Martin, and Simon Callow will play Elisha Whitney. Anything Goes features music by the iconic American composer and lyricist, Cole Porter. Songs in Anything Goes include “I Get A Kick Out of You”, “Friendship” and “You’re The Top”.

Alex Jennings stars in the world premiere of Stephen Beresford’s The Southbury Child play at the Bridge Theatre. The Southbury Child tickets are available on London Theatre now. As The Southbury Child is a new play, not much is known about the storyline. However audiences can expect a dark comic which explores the connections between families, religions and social identities. The play centres on David Highland, a flashy vicar who doesn’t always behave in the eyes of the Lord. However, his parish remain loyal to him, thanks to his unexpected successful charm. It’s all called into question though when he deals with a bereaved local and his opinions vary massively from the local community. Soon enough, David is isolated from all those he considers acquaintances and his social life falls apart. Can David rescue his position in the town and society at large? The three-time Olivier-winning actor Alex Jennings takes the charge at the Bridge Theatre for the first time as David Highland. He’s previously won Oliviers for starring in My Fair Lady, Peer Gynt and Too Clever by Half. Recently, he starred in Hansard at the National Theatre and played Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Now, he’ll play a troubled vicar in Stephen Beresford’s new play. Stephen Beresford writes The Southbury Child in London. Beresford is best known for the 2014 film, Pride, a LGBTQ+-positive film based on the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. To date, Beresford’s plays include The Last of the Haussmans, Fanny and Alexander and Three Kings. Tickets to The Southbury Child are available now.

See how the Tudor monarch impacted England and the world in Henry VIII at Shakespeare’s Globe in summer 2022. Henry VIII tickets are available now on London Theatre. As expected, the Henry VIII play centres on the life of the infamous titular Tudor monarch. He's arguably one of Britain's most famous rulers, but he had a challenging reign. It took him three wives before he finally had a much-desired male heir — Jane Seymour gave birth to Edward, who would become Edward VI, but died in childbirth. Plus he was part of creating the Church of England, a new religion in order to split from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. Too often, Tudor history focuses solely on Henry VIII, but what did the women think of his decisions? In Henry VIII London performances, Henry's wives fight for justice and change in a paternalistic world where speaking out is unheard of. William Shakespeare and John Fletcher co-wrote Henry VIII in the early 1600s, just 70 years after the Tudor monarch passed. Now with centuries worth of reflection and a historical paradigm shift where the history of women and marginalised groups is closely interrogated, discover Shakespeare’s exploration of power and lineage with a female perspective. Telling Henry VIII’s story has proved pretty popular in the West End in recent years. The Tudor history musical Six is currently at the Vaudeville Theatre, and continues its reign over London. Now the monarch will be in London this summer, so don’t miss his rule. Henry VIII is part of Shakespeare’s Globe 25th anniversary season. The season includes Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, King Lear, The Tempest and Joan, a new play about Joan of Arc. Find out more about the Shakespeare’s Globe season. Tickets to Henry VIII are available now. Book your Henry VIII tickets on London Theatre today.
