The Wild Party

Until April 1, 2017

Last staged in 2015 at The New York Center as part of their Encores season, In The Heights' Drew McOnie brings a new production of Michael John LaChiusa's darkly comic musical to London in 2017, starring Broadway legends Donna McKechnie and Frances Ruffelle, the latter of whom first came to prominence as the original Eponine in the premiere London and Broadway stagings of Les Miserables, which won her a Tony Award. The Wild Party first premiered off-Broadway in 2000, with Frozen and Wicked's Idina Menzel, together with and Brian d'Arcy in the starring roles of the destructive married couple Queenie and Burrs.

This Joint is Jumping

Directed by Patrice Miller with choreography by Michela Marino Lerman, it is endorsed and produced by produced by Hoagy B. Carmichael, son of the legendary American composer Hoagy Carmichael. With an on-stage jazz band, the dance show will re-introduce you to jazz standards such as Ain't Misbehavin', Black and Blue and Honeysuckle Rose to name a few! A must-see for dance and jazz fans. A delightful combination of live jazz, tap dancing and storytelling makes for an exciting evening out.

Whisper House

April 6-May 27, 2017

As part of the inaugural season of The Other Palace (renamed from the current St James Theatre) in 2017, Duncan Sheik's UK Premiere of a haunting musical ghost story arrives in April. The composer of hit musicals Spring Awakening and American Psycho, this production originated in 2009 as a concept album, and premiered in San Diego the following year to critical acclaim. History and the supernatural collide during the Second World War in this familial exploration of loyalty and tension, with a score that has been deemed daring for its bleakness.

La Strada

May 30-July 8, 2017

As part of The Other Palace's (currently St James Theatre) inaugural season in 2017, Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning 1957 film is transformed into a stunning new musical adaptation by the producer of recent West End hits Top Hat, The Play That Goes Wrong and Hetty Feather. Helmed by Olivier nominee Sally Cookson, the score is composed by Benji Bower in what is a long-awaited move to theatre. Set in the postwar Italian countryside, La Strada (translated: The Road) follows a simple-minded peasant girl and a brutal carnival strongman on a perilous journey to acceptance, exploring pride and survival along the way.
