Mischief Theatre, the Olivier Award-winning company behind The Play That Goes Wrong, is flabbergasted to announce a new booking period for Magic Goes Wrong, with tickets now on sale until 30th August 2020.

Created with magic legends Penn & Teller, this is the second production as part of Mischief Theatre’s residency at the Vaudeville Theatre. In the latest ‘Goes Wrong’ comedy to hit the West End, the original Mischief company play a hapless gang of magicians presenting a charity event. As the accidents spiral out of control, so does their fundraising target!

Take out your magic wand, cast the enchantment, and book your Magic Goes Wrong tickets through Official London Theatre today for a spell-bindingly disastrous evening! 

It was announced today that Lucie Jones Live At The Adelphi on Sunday 16th February will be recorded and released as a live album, available in Spring 2020, with specific release details to follow.

Lucie will be joined on stage by guest artists; fellow Welsh musical star John Owens (Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera) and her Waitress co-star Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls, Hairspray).

The show is a celebration of all that Lucie has achieved to date and will be packed with old classics, modern hits, and will feature stories from Lucie’s incredible career. Accompanied by the 22-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra, this is one show you don’t want to miss!

Lucie said: “The Adelphi has become so special to me while playing Jenna over the past year. Being able to step out onto that stage just as Lucie is going to be a once in a lifetime experience, and recording the show for a live album is the icing on the cake—or pie! I’m so excited to share the evening with everyone, with a 22-piece orchestra playing some of our favourite tunes, plus a few stories from me and a couple of incredible guests. I know I’ll be reliving the night through the album for the rest of my life!”


More2Screen is excited to present the cinema release of the critically acclaimed Kinky Boots The Musical, the winner of every Best Musical award, which will be screened in more than 600 cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 4 and 9 February 2020.

With songs from Grammy and Tony Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, book by legendary Broadway playwright Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles), and direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots The Musical stars the original West End leads, Matt Henry and Killian Donnelly.

Inspired by true events, this heartwarming hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (Matt Henry) is an entertainer with an exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen before.

This unmissable musical theatre event celebrates a joyful story of British grit transforming into a high-heeled hit as it takes you from the factory floor of Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan.
