Extraordinary Theatre: Shows no superfan can miss in 2021

Missing Matilda? Lost without Lion King? Oh boy do we know that feeling! So there’s never been a better time to cheer ourselves up with a look ahead to Springtime for Theatre in London’s West End. With all the uncertainty we’ve faced recently over local lockdowns, tiers and tiaras, it’s been a nightmare for any of us to plan our lives, let alone our diaries. But now, with a vaccine so close we can almost touch it, it’s time to dust off our dancing shoes and trip the light fantastic down Shaftesbury Avenue to see what theatrical treats lie in store for 2021 from spring and beyond!

It can be confusing to know what’s opening when, so we’ve put together this handy guide for our “top tips for 2021” – shows that are opening, or returning, plus the latest news about how the West End is shaping up in the year ahead.

Hot Picks for 2021

Get Up, Stand Up! The Musical at the Lyric Theatre

Following a hugely successful workshop in 2019, this definitive new musical, featuring Bob Marley’s iconic hits, will be brought alive on the West End stage by a multi award-winning team including Lee Hall (Billy Elliot The MusicalNetwork) and Clint Dyer (Death of England). The book takes direct inspiration from Marley’s visionary lyrics to tell his extraordinary personal story as an artist. This is a show with real heart that promises to bring us together – and after a year that’s forced us apart that’s music to our ears! Book now and lose yourself to the rhythm of ‘Exodus’‘No Woman No Cry’‘Three Little Birds’, ‘I Shot the Sheriff’‘Could You Be Loved’, ‘Redemption Song’ and so much more.

From 28 May 2021
Tickets from £18

Anything Goes at the Barbican Theatre

This Cole Porter classic last wowed the West End back in 2002-4 when Sally Ann Triplett and John Barrowman starred as delightful Reno Sweeney and delectable Billy Crocker. Part farce, part tap-dancing tour-de-force, the show is one of the great musicals of the 20th Century, and it just about as high-camp & uplifting a night out as you can get! The 2021 production will star Will & Grace’s Megan Mullally as Reno. We NEED this show back in our lives…it’s de-lovely!

From 8 May 2021
Book Tickets from £30

Hairspray at the London Coliseum

You can’t stop the beat! And you can’t stop Michael Ball dragging up either! We last saw Hairspray at the Shaftesbury Theatre back in 2007-10 and we haven’t stopped grinning since. This smash-hit show is the heart-warming tale of Tracy Turnblad who proves that big girls DO get the guy…The show won a staggering 13 Tony Awards on Broadway and it’s not hard to see why. This production sees Michael Ball return to the role of Tracy’s mum, Edna – in the original London production did such an incredible job that some people complained that he wasn’t in the show, not realising THAT WAS HIM IN THE DRESS!

From 22 April 2021
Book tickets from £20.13

Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre

We’ve got high hopes for this brand new rags-to-riches musical and we all know the story, right? This enchanting new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical promises to challenge our ideas about the traditional fairytale Cinders. Starring Carrie Hope-Fletcher in the title role and the utterly fabulous Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as her Stepmother, the show was delayed due to the pandemic and will be the first show to open at the renamed Gillian Lynne Theatre (formerly the New London Theatre). We’re expecting a tantalising glimpse of glitter, a sensationally sparkly set, and a seriously feisty Cinderella!

From 30 April 2021
Book tickets from £23.40

& Juliet at the Shaftesbury Theatre

When Covid-19 shut down the West End, & Juliet had just been nominated for an astonishing nine Olivier Awards. This bright, brilliant show features some of the greatest ever pop hits from Swedish superstar Max Martin – if you don’t know him, that’s because he prefers to stay out of the limelight…but he’s written some of the catchiest, cleverest pop-hits of the past 30 years for the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Pink. The show asks ‘what would happen if Juliet hadn’t died’ at the end of Shakespeare’s famous tale of star-crossed lovers. & Juliet is uplifting, fresh, sparkly, fun and one of the most exciting shows to open in the West End in years. It’s already a cult hit…no surprise with a book by David West Read (Schitt’s Creek) and stellar performances! The cast is appearing on BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing – The Results Show on Sunday 6th December (check out & Juliet’s youtube channel afterwards if you’ve missed it).

From 12 March 2021
Tickets from £24.60

Back to the Future The Musical at the Adelphi Theatre

We’re as excited as you are to see how they make a DeLorean sports car disappear on a West End stage! The show was thrilling audiences in Manchester when, like the DeLorean, Coronavirus made the show vanish before our very eyes…It will reappear in May 2021 at the Adelphi Theatre with Olly Dobson as Marty McFly and original music my multi-Grammy Award winners Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard. Wouldn’t we all love a car that could transport us from 1955 straight to 2021!

From 14 May 2021
Tickets from £22.48

Moulin Rouge at the Piccadilly Theatre

What started out as a Baz Lurhmann film has now grown wings and turned into a fully-fledged, stunningly beautiful Broadway stage musical…and now it’s coming to London. The show was described by the New York Times as “fireworks, confetti and glittering fragments of what feels like every pop hit ever written” and will open at a Piccadilly theatre completely transformed into the Moulin Rouge – complete with windmill! We’re still awaiting a date for opening night, but keep an eye out because when the show goes on sale, tickets will go like hot chou buns!

Is it safe to go back to the theatre?

If you’re still feeling a little unsure about coming back into the Theatreland, check out See it Safely: Your guide to a COVID-safe theatre experience – handy whether you’re already raring to resume your theatregoing, or just building up your confidence. With a vaccine on the horizon, things are looking great for theatre to roar back in 2021 and in the meantime, masks, hand sanitisers and social distancing will be as second nature as switching off your mobile; rest assured that theatres are taking your safety VERY seriously and many of the shows we mention are booking well into the future.

Which other shows are coming back in 2021?

These fabulous shows are booking now, although exact re-opening dates will be subject to future government advice:

Exclusive interview with Kerry Ellis on Cabaret All Stars at Proud Embankment

From this October, Proud Embankment’s sell-out show Cabaret All Stars welcomes the West End’s favourite leading lady, multi-award-winning Kerry Ellis. Kerry will headline this circus-cabaret spectacular every Friday in October and November alongside its show-stopping International Cirque de Soleil acts. 

At From The Box Office, we were lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with Kerry to talk more about the show, how she’s been handling life in lockdown, and her plans for the future.

This year has undoubtedly had a huge impact on the theatre industry. How does it feel to finally be back on the West End stage?

I am beside myself with excitement to be back performing in Cabaret All Stars at Proud Embankment. Performing alongside a line-up of incredible artists is pure joy. I think it’s exactly what people need right now. 

What can audiences expect from Cabaret All Stars? 

They can expect to have their minds blown! The talent is amazing, the show is lots of fun and provides the release and escapism everyone is looking for right now. 

The show features some incredible acts. Is there an act that you would love to do if you could? 

I’d love to have a go on at the aeriel – everyone knows I love my yoga so I could maybe throw a few shapes on there!

Cabaret is a little different from your usual West End musical roles. What is it that you like about it? 

It has something for everyone! With huge shows like Cirque closed right now, we are blessed with some of their amazing cast members. I think this is a rare occasion to see so many worldwide superstars in one night on one stage. 

From Eliza Doolittle to Elphaba, you’ve played some of the top musical theatre characters of all time. Is there a character you’ve dreamt of playing that you’re yet to tick off the list? 

Evita, Roxie Hart, and lots of things I’m not quite old enough for just yet: Norma Desmond, Gypsy, The Baker’s Wife.

During lockdown, a lot of people took to baking banana bread or doing jigsaw puzzles – what did you do to keep yourself sane? 

I’ve been busy selling my latest album Feels like Home (available on www.kerryellis.com). I’m also writing a book, did a podcast, Keep Calm and Kerry On, and have been teaching a bit online.

Do you have anything else in the pipeline at the moment? 

My diary is trying to fill up! There are lots of things bubbling, I just hope they can happen. But for now I’m overjoyed to be performing in Cabaret All Stars at Proud Embankment.

Finally, do you have any words of advice for aspiring performers? 

Hang in there. Work on your talents now, so that when things do open up, you’re ready!

You can see Kerry Ellis in Cabaret All Stars at Proud Embankment every Friday in October and throughout November.

Tickets for Cabaret All Stars are on sale now.
Price: £66 per person.
Includes a three-course menu with welcome cocktail – click here to see the menu.

More about the show…

Back to the Future: The Musical arrives in London’s West End next summer

After launching regionally earlier this year, the stage adaptation of cult classic film Back to the Future is finally coming to London’s West End – and you can get your hands on tickets next week! 

Back to the Future: The Musical is set to open at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 14 May 2021. Tickets will be going on general sale on Wednesday 16 September. Sign up here to be notified as soon as tickets are available.

The show originally opened to critical acclaim at the Manchester Opera House in February, but shows were halted soon after due to the pandemic.

Creators of the iconic 80s classic trilogy Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale adapted the story for stage. It is directed by the Tony Award-winning John Rando (Urinetown) and produced by Colin Ingram (Ghost — The Musical).

The West End show will feature music and lyrics by Emmy and Grammy Award-winning Alan Silvestri and six-time Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard. It includes classic tunes from the soundtrack including The Power of Love and Johnny B Goode.

Christopher Lloyd, 81, who played Dr Emmett “Doc” Brown in the movie, and also starred in The Addams Family and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, said about the show coming to the West End: “I’m delighted that Back To The Future the Musical will be up and running in London in mid-May. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the show’s run in Manchester, so I’m excited to finally see it for myself.

“I’ve already heard some of the new songs and met many of the cast members, particularly Roger Bart who plays Doc, so I’m confident the stage version will be exactly what our fans have been hoping for. And, Great Scott, I can’t wait to hear Doc Brown sing!”

Gale said: “Bob Zemeckis and I are over the moon to finally be opening Back To The Future The Musical in the West End at the historic Adelphi Theatre, and we can’t wait for audiences to experience our show. I promise, everyone will be delighted with how we’ve translated the movie to the stage.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s New Musical Cinderella Set To Open Next Spring

“The show will absolutely go on, just a little later than I’d hoped.”

ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER

Andrew Lloyd Webber and the Really Useful Group have pushed the premiere of Cinderella from this October to next spring. The new musical will now world premiere at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in London on Wednesday 7th April 2021, with previews from Friday 19th March 2021. 

This highly-anticipated production is set to completely reinvent the classic fairytale. Featuring a brand new score by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Oscar-nominated David Zippel, and a script by Emmy Award nominated Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve, A Promising Young Woman, Call The Midwife, The Crown).

Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Miserables, Heathers, The Addams Family, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins) will play Cinderella, and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (The Wild Party, In The Heights, A Chorus Line, Flashdance, Grease) will play the Wicked Stepmother. Additional cast and creative team have not been announced.

Lloyd Webber said in a statement, “Whilst I continue to impress on the government that theatres can reopen safely based on the London Palladium model, it has become clear that we need to move the opening of Cinderella to next spring. My teams have been working throughout lockdown to prepare the show and are raring to go, but there are key elements, not least casting and the building of sets and costumes, that take months of forward planning and can only start as we get further down the road to normal. So the show will absolutely go on, just a little later than I’d hoped.”

A total reimagining of the classic story, get ready for Cinderella… like you’ve never seen her before.
Tickets are on sale now from only £23.40

Sister Act starring Whoopi Goldberg rescheduled for 2021

The producers of Sister Act announced today that performances in London have now been rescheduled due to the current global pandemic.

Sister Act was due to open at the Eventim Apollo from 21 July 2020 to 30 August 2020. It is now rescheduled to open 20 July 2021 where it will play until 29 August 2021.

Current ticketholders for the London run have been moved into the same seats for equivalent performances by day of week for the 2021 run. Patrons will be able to use their current ticket for performances next year. Performance times remain unchanged.

The show will star the previously announced Whoopi Goldberg as ‘Deloris Van Cartier’ and Jennifer Saunders as ‘Mother Superior’. Further casting for the London run will be announced soon.

Whoopi Goldberg, who is also one of the producers of Sister Act, said today:

‘We are thrilled with the overwhelming support from people all over the world who have been buying tickets for Sister Act. We are all disappointed not to be able to do the show this summer, but Jennifer and I can’t wait to see you all next year’.

Producer Jamie Wilson said today:

Due to COVID-19, We have made the very difficult decision to reschedule our London run of Sister Act to 2021. By rescheduling the production exactly 12 months later to the same performance dates, meaning ticket holders keeping their same seats, we believe we have made the best decision open to us. I would like to thank the team at the Eventim Apollo, Whoopi, Jennifer and everyone involved with the show who has reworked their schedules to make this move possible. We can’t wait to open the convent next year and share this incredibly celebratory musical with you all’.

Sister Act is now running at Eventim Apollo from 20 July 2021 to 29 August 2021. If you didn’t get your hands on tickets the first time round, you’re in luck! There is good availability w/c 20th July – browse tickets here.

Feel-good musical soundtracks to brighten your day

It’s day 456761 of lockdown and we’ve run out of Tiktoks, funny cat videos and new dance trends to try. It’s definitely time for some feel-good musical theatre tunes to lift our spirits! We dare you to still feel blue after giving these hits a go…

Come From Away
The heart-warming tale of a community that comes together in the dark days following 9/11 seems a fitting soundtrack to lift our spirits while we’re social distancing. Featuring plenty of upbeat and catchy songs, Screech In will be the perfect track to get everybody up and dancing.

Dear Evan Hansen
It’s the musical that has taken Broadway and the West End by storm, and now the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack can serve as the perfect reminder that we are never as alone as we think we are. If you’re in need of some kind words, we recommend what is probably the most well known track, You Will Be Found, but Sincerely, Me is also a great song if you need a laugh.

Hairspray
Quite possibly the best film adaptation of a musical (don’t fight us on this), it doesn’t get much more feel-good than Hairspray! Rather than choosing one stand-out song, we recommend putting this smash-hit soundtrack on repeat and turning the volume up as high as is socially acceptable.

Mamma Mia!
It’s ABBA… it’s Meryl Streep singing ABBA… do we need any further explanation? If Meryl can’t make you smile, Pierce Brosnan could potentially at least make you laugh.

Kinky Boots
It’s got sass, it’s got catchy tunes and it encourages us all to love ourselves a little more – the Kinky Boots soundtrack really does have it all! It’s impossible to be sad while listening to the feel-good lyrics of Raise You Up.

Funny Girl
Barbra Streisand. That’s it. That’s all we need.

Jersey Boys
There have been productions of this classic jukebox show in London’s West End, Las Vegas, Chicago, Toronto, Melbourne (and other Australian cities), Singapore, South Africa, The Netherlands, Japan, Dubai, and China for good reason! Who can resist singing along to the smooth tones of Frank Valli and The Four Seasons?

Hamilton
This smash-hit sensation, brought to us by the creative genius that is Lin-Manuel Miranda, features some of the greatest lyrics in musical theatre history. And who knows, perhaps by the time we’ve finished social distancing, we’ll all be able to rap the soundtrack like a pro!

Happy #WorldTheatreDay

Let that lonely (self isolation) feeling wash away, raise the barricades and get ready to defy gravity, as today marks #WorldTheatreDay! While this year’s festivities can’t involve a trip to see a glittering West End show, there are still plenty of ways that you can celebrate your love of theatre…

Netflix and… sing?

One of the many gifts that the internet has given us is the ability to access and stream a myriad of films, tv programmes, music, podcasts – and now theatre too! Below we’ve rounded up the incredible selection of musicals, movie adaptations and plays currently available on a range of streaming platforms. Get bingeing!

Netflix

West Side Story (1961)

Les Misérables (2012)
Hugh Jackman… need we say more? The Oscar-winning adaptation is also available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

Fiddler on the Roof (1971)
This 3-hour epic is the perfect way to pass #WorldTheatreDay.

The Last Five Years (2014)

Now TV

Soundtracks galore

Apple Music and Spotify users rejoice – with more soundtracks than ever before instantly available to stream and download, you can enjoy your favourite musical theatre tunes from the comfort of your home. Our top recommendations include…

SIX
Take six of the most infamous women in human history, write a girl-power fuelled smash-hit musical, cast ridiculously talented queens, record an album, and what do you end up with? The SIX: The Musical soundtrack. These are the perfect power ballads to get us through the drolls of self isolation!

Hamilton
With catchy music and impressive lyrics from talent power-house and all-round beacon of positivity, Lin-Manuel Miranda (if you don’t follow him on social media, we highly recommend), it’s no wonder that the Hamilton soundtrack is one of the most streamed worldwide. It could also be a great way to teach the kids some history as part of their home schooling!

Company (2018)
It wouldn’t be #WorldTheatreDay without Sondheim or Patti LuPone! Following a five-star West End run in 2018, the critically acclaimed gender-switched adaptation of Company transferred to Broadway in 2019, and has wowed audiences on both sides of the pond. If you didn’t get a chance to see the show yourself, listening to the soundtrack will give you a taste of the talent behind this new version of Sondheim’s classic.

The power of social media

The National Theatre recently announced that they will be uploading one of their past productions to their YouTube channel every Thursday at 7PM, and they they’ll also available on-demand for a full week afterwards.

It will be available to watch on the Sadler’s Wells Facebook page as the first in their weekly series  of  Sadler’s Wells  Facebook Premieres.

Game of Thrones fans that missed out on Maisie Williams’ stage debut are in luck – Hampstead Theatre have announced that they will be broadcasting their production of Lauren Gunderson’s play ‘I and You’, which tells the story of two students studying Walt Whitman on Instagram. Watch from March 23-29 on Hampstead Theatre’s IGTV @hampstead-theatre.
