The Miser

Until June 10, 2017

Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End for the first time in five years to star in Sean Foley's adaptation of Moliere's farcical portrait of a family at war over true love and the penny-pinching avarice of their father, the titular miser.

Tape Face

June 6-July 22, 2017

Debuting in 2016 in Las Vegas, and appearing on America's Got Talent in 2008, this uniquely charming silent comedian is set to charm the socks off audiences at the Garrick Theatre, as part of his first UK tour. Hailed by Mr Mean (Simon Cowell) as a modern-day Charlie Chaplin, Sam Wills' curious and cute creation has won over audiences in America, his native New Zealand with his uproariously funny use of every day objects, music and even the films of Patrick Swayze. A fond tribute to the forgotten art of mime and silent comedy, Tape Face won the The Press People's Choice Award at the World Buskers Festival in 2008, following his appearance on AGT.

David Walliams' Gangsta Granny

July 26-September 3, 2017

In time to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Birmingham Stage Company will stage a brand-new adaptation of David Walliams' best-selling children's book, Gangsta Granny. Coming to the Garrick Theatre in summer 2017, this Neal Foster co-produced work boasts an incredible creative team with design by Jackie Trousdale and choreography by Chantry Dance Company. With casting yet to be announced, this West End treat is expected to draw kids in over the summer holidays, making it a great way to experience theatre for the first time!

Horrible Histories More Best Of Barmy Britain

August 5-September 2, 2017

Calling all fans of gross, grim and utterly hilarious - Horrible Histories once again heads to the West End this summer with their brand-new show, courtesy of Birmingham Stage Company to mark their 25th anniversary! A British phenomenon on both television and the stage; it has seen 12 years of stage adaptations, with six of those enjoying prime engagements in the West End. This new show will combine all the best bits of their previous Barmy Britain Parts One, Two and Three shows, plus last year's The Best of Barmy Britain, and a brand new scene featuring Shakespeare!

Young Frankenstein

Opens September 28, 2017

Mel Brooks is set to bring his hugely successful 2007 re-imagining of Young Frankenstein to the West End, following its critically acclaimed run on Broadway, and the following US tour. Currently on the prowl for a permanent home in London, Young Frankenstein will be co-directed by Brooks and Susan Stroman, who also choreographed the adaptation for the stage. With a host of British talent being sought for the cast, watch this space for more details of dates and a theatre for the satirical masterpiece to call home!
