Exciting news for Ruthie Henshall fans today! UK audiences will finally have a chance to enjoy the West End stars new intimate show In My Life next year.

In My Life premiered at the Sydney Opera House in June 2019 and went on to tour Australia playing to packed houses and a slew of 5-star, rave reviews.  The 2021 tour will play Leicester (12-13 March), Dublin (16 March), London (19 March), and Salford Quays (25 March).

This new intimate show will give fans a rare opportunity to see this dazzling star up close and personal, reinterpreting highlights from her acclaimed career as well as exploring the work of other iconic artists from Stephen Sondheim and Carole King to Victoria Wood and The Beatles. 

Ruthie Henshall said: “When theatre opens again, I will literally dance in the street! It’s so sad because when things are scary and sad, the theatre is always a pick-me-up and we have not been able to do that. The theatre opening again is something I can’t wait for. It is my breath. To perform and to watch, it gives me something nothing else does. I am thrilled to be doing this tour and having not performed for a while, I will have even more to give!  It’s a very personal show that Is about life, loves and shows and it’s got a whole lot of heart. There’ll be stories to tell, songs to sing, I cannot wait to share this show with you and be back in a theatre.”

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.
