Dorian Gray is a new musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s only novel, The Picture Of Dorian Gray.
Dorian Gray descends into the depths of Victorian London’s secret underworld on his quest to seek the “ultimate sensation”. But at what cost? Away from the opera houses, the salons and the gentlemen’s clubs there lies a darker, murkier underbelly; tawdry theatres, burlesque bars, cabaret clubs and opium dens.
Following its sold out run in the Leicester Square theatre’s basement space earlier in the year, this adaptation of Dorian Gray, which uses live music to conjure the novel’s world of glamour and decadence, returns to the London venue.
Matthew James Thomas, who plays Dorian Gray, is probably best known for his role as Jez Tyler in ITV’s stage school drama Britannia High, but has also appeared in the films Billy Elliot and The Lost Prince.
