Next week, the highly anticipated revival of the Olivier Award-winning musical Caroline, Or Change is opening at the Playhouse Theatre. And in anticipation of this epic transfer, we snuck into rehearsals and took a sneaky video to share with you!

Watch the exclusive video below to see the Olivier Award-winning Sharon D Clarke and the rest of the cast as they prepare for the big stage.

Written by Tony Kushner (Angels In America) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home), Caroline, Or Change is a playful, profound, funny and deeply moving tale. 

Set in 1963 Louisiana, change is in the air. But the spirit of revolution is worlds away from the life of poorly paid maid Caroline who barely scrapes a living by working in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household.

When the Gellman son, Noah, sneaks down to see her, an unexpected friendship blossoms. When the pair are together, the basement transforms into a fantastical place of singing radios, washing machines and dryers. But as Noah continually leaves money in his pockets, Caroline is faced with a dilemma which tests how far the winds of change can ever really reach.

Caroline, Or Change had sold-out runs at both the Chichester Festival Theatre and Hampstead Theatre. Now, it’s making its London comeback and, if the rehearsal is anything to go by, we’re expecting huge things.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
