This year’s must-see musical will star Emmy & SAG Award winner Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) who is making her West End musical debut as Reno Sweeney, and Tony, Olivier & BAFTA Award winner Robert Lindsay (Me & My Girl, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Moonface Martin. They will join Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life), also making her West End musical debut as Evangeline Harcourt and leading West End musical actor Gary Wilmot (Chicago, London Palladium Pantomimes) as Elisha Whitney.

Join the internationally renowned Megan Mullally and Olivier Award-winning Robert Lindsay as they board the S.S America on an adventure from New York to London. From dancing crew members and comical disguise to finding true love, this musical sensation is pure escapism.

Olivier Award winners The Showstoppers add two new dates for live streamed theatre fun!

Olivier Award winners The Showstoppers are to continue creating theatre in the face of adversity as they return to small screens with a double helping of smash hit musical comedy beamed from their socially distanced studio on 26 and 27 March.

Ideas will be taken live from audiences watching at home and transformed on the spot into TWO brand new musical comedies guaranteed to have viewers in fits of laughter one moment and gasping in awe of the talented performers the next.

So whether you fancy ‘Chicago’ in a chocolate factory or ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ in Dundee, you suggest it and The Showstoppers will make it happen and stream it straight to your sofa!

The shows are available to purchase and to watch for 7 days after the live event so if you can’t join The Showstoppers on the night, you can catch up afterwards.

All tickets offer the same show and the same view, however if you feel able to please do consider paying closer to what you normally would for a night at the theatre. If you are watching with more than one person per household, please consider buying a ticket per person if you can. Click here to find out more information and to book your tickets.

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.
