Calling all musical theatre fans – you’re going to want to put these August dates in your diary! Three incredible star-studded concerts are coming to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

Chess, Kinky Boots and brand-new British musical Treason will each be performing for one night only. With stars including Carrie Hope Fletcher, Matt Willis, Courtney Bowman, Samantha Barks and Les Dennis. These special one-off performances will be accompanied by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra.


Kicking off the season is ABBA’s iconic Chess, starring Samantha Barks (Frozen, Les Misérables) as Florence and Hadley Fraser (2:22 A Ghost Story, City of Angels) as Anatoly, with further exciting casting to be announced soon.

This will be followed by Cyndi Lauper’s Olivier Award-winning Kinky Boots with Cedric Neal (Back To The Future, Motown The Musical), as Lola/Simon, Matt Willis (Busted, Waitress, Wicked) as Charlie and Courtney Bowman (Legally Blonde, SIX) as Lauren.


The brand new musical Treason will complete the August concerts, making its live stage debut! Leading the cast for the first live outing are Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables, Heathers) as Martha Percy, Bradley Jaden (Les Misérables, Wicked) as Thomas Percy and Simon-Anthony Rhoden (Hamilton, Kinky Boots) as Robert Catesby.
