Until April 6, 2019

Featuring Tony-nominated music by Jeanine Tesori and libretto by collaborator Brian Crawley, Violet is a musical based on the short story 'The Ugliest Pilgrim' by Doris Bett. It tells the moving story of a young girl on a journey she hopes will transform her both physically and emotionally. Enduring a facial disfigurement from a traumatic childhood accident, Violet fervently believes a television faith-healer can erase her scar and determinedly boards a bus to find him. With scenes from the scarring incident and Violet's troubled early years woven into the narrative, we follow her along a life-changing personal endeavour as she bonds with fellow passengers and asserts a new outlook on life. The piece is an international co-production with Umeda Arts Theatre in Japan and is helmed by Japanese director, Shuntaro Fujita. The hotly anticipated UK premiere will take place at the Charing Cross Theatre in January 2019, before transferring to Tokyo. Tickets for the show are on sale now!

May 2 - July 20, 2019

Michel Legrand's enchanting and fantastical musical, Amour, makes its long-awaited UK debut at the Charing Cross Theatre this May. Featuring a score by the famous composer, Amour tells the story of Dusoleil, an unassuming French civil servant who yearns for a more magical life. Directed by Hannah Chissick and Choreographed by Matt Cole, Amour is a musical about daring to dream, self-belief, and creating your own magic.
