New Adventures’ magical production of Edward Scissorhands is back in London after a phenomenally successful World Tour that has included sell-out performances in New York, LA, San Francisco, Syndey, Melbourne and Paris.
Matthew Bourne’s adaptation of the classic Tim Burton motion picture is a treat for all the family. Featuring the beautiful and unmistakable theme music by Danny Elfman, this touching and witty gothic fairytale tells the story of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward struggles to find his place in a strange new suburban world where the well meaning community struggle to see past his strange appearance to the innocence and gentleness within.
After global success with his inspired interpretations of Car Man, Nutcracker!, Highland Fling and the multi award-winning Swan Lake and Play Without Words, Matthew Bourne has also enjoyed success with his work in the hit musical, Mary Poppins.
