This summer, the brand-new musical, Broken Wings, is coming to London for four days only and we’ve got a sneak peek at what you can expect.

Making its world premiere at Theatre Royal Haymarket from 1-4 August and will star co-writer Naaman as the lead Gibran, the show’s narrator, as well as Nikita Johal (Spring Awakening, Hope Mill Theatre) as Selma Karamy and Rob Houchen (Les Misérables) as Gibran’s teenage self.

You can get a glimpse of the moving new show via the rehearsal shots below.

Based on Lebanese-born poet Kahlil Gibran’s iconic 1912 masterpiece of the same name, Broken Wings is an autobiographical tale of tragic love which spans two decades and half the world. Telling the tale of a young man named Gibran who falls in love with Selma Karamy who becomes betrothed to the nephew of the powerful Bishop Bulos Galib, who has his eyes on the Karamy family fortune. But while Gibran and Selma fight for their love, they must also navigate the rules, traditions and expectations that their society lays before them.

The events of Broken Wings highlight key issues of the time, yet the themes and debates raised remain increasingly relevant today, over a century later; the fight for gender equality, the freedom to love who we love, tradition versus modernity, wealth versus happiness, immigration and the importance of ‘home’.

Broken Wings is part of our Kids Week initiative. That means a child can see a performance of Broken Wings for FREE when they’re accompanied by a full-paying adult.

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.

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.
