The sensational Moulin Rouge! The Musical comes to London’s Piccadilly Theatre from 12 November 2021 - and the West End has never seen anything like it. With 5 Drama Desk Awards, 11 Outer Critics Circle Awards, and 14 Tony Award Nominations including Best Musical, Best Director, and Best Choreography, this is a mash-up musical like no other. A world of spectacle, romance, and eye-popping excess awaits you at Moulin Rouge! The Musical, where bohemians and aristocrats alike revel in delightful decadence. Compere extraordinaire Harold Zidler invites you to take a seat, and prepare for a theatrical experience of truth, beauty, freedom and above all - love. Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film comes to life in the West End, remixed with over 70 songs to create a pop score unique in musical theatre while still firmly rooted in character and storytelling. Its home, the Piccadilly Theatre, has been revamped and reconfigured especially for this production. No matter your sin, you’re welcome here. No matter your desire, you’re welcome here. For this is more than a nightclub. The Moulin Rouge is a state of mind! What is the show about? “This is a story about love. About passionate love, desperate love, and foolish love! And the kind of love you never forget.” Set in Paris, 1899, a world of indulgent beauty and unparalleled extravagance, of bohemians and aristocrats, of boulevardiers and reprobates, Moulin Rouge! The Musical is the story of a lovesick American writer, Christian, and Satine, the dazzling star of the Moulin Rouge nightclub. When their lives collide, they fall hopelessly in love - only to be thwarted by the nightclub’s host and impresario, Harold Zidler, and The Duke of Monroth, the wealthy and entitled patron of the club who thinks he can buy anything he wants, including Satine. Together with his Bohemian friends (the brilliant and starving artist Toulouse-Lautrec, and the greatest tango dancer in all of Paris, Santiago) Christian stages a musical spectacular to save the Moulin Rouge and finally win the heart of Satine.

The Book Of Mormon is a nine-time Tony-winning, multi-Olivier awarded and Grammy-getting musical. Playing at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre, it continues to have West End audiences knocking on its door. Have you joined the mission? Written by the animated sitcom’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book Of Mormon is a satirical musical that takes shots at everything from organised religion to consumerism, the state of the economy and the musical theatre genre itself. The show tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries who travel to Africa to preach the Mormon religion, only to discover they have a lot more to learn about the real world than they have to teach about Mormonism. When the pair of opposites land in a poverty-stricken, crime-riddled and disease-filled village in Uganda, the enigmatic over-achiever and prideful Mormon Elder Price learns that charms and good looks don’t get you far. As for his awkward and enthusiastic partner Elder Cunningham; well, he’s just happy to have a friend and be included in something. Thousands of miles from Salt Lake City and facing the biggest of reality checks, Elder Price’s faith is shaken. He must convince himself of the scriptures he’s preaching before he can convert any of the locals who are more concerned with war, famine, and AIDS than Mormonism. However, armed with his own interpretation of the Book and an innocent disposition, Elder Cunningham thrives… sort of.
