Why See Top Hat?

Winner of three Olivier Awards including Best New Musical!

Irrepressible Broadway sensation Jerry Travers dances his way across Europe to win the heart of society model Dale Tremont.

Packed full of Irving Berlin’s greatest hits, such as Let’s Face the Music and Dance, Cheek to Cheek and Top Hat, White Tie and Tails, stunning tap, romantic ballroom and a little bit of Busby Berkeley thrown in for good measure,

Top Hat is a giddy, glorious celebration of 1930s song and dance, featuring magnificent sets, over 200 costumes and a love story that will set the pulses racing!

What we thought

HIGHLY-RECOMMENDED Masterpiece interesting

Chambers is Astaire to a T - albeit a few inches taller.

The show is an elegantly comedic farce, part-play, part dance spectacle...
