Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express returns to London

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express returns to London



The show comes to Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from June 2024.

Get your skates on. Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express is rolling back to London. Running from 8 June 2024, the show will be held at a specially designed Starlight Auditorium in Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre. 

Starlight Express is part of Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, which is a partnership between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Harrison. The show first rolled into the West End in 1984, and tells the story of a child's train set, Rusty, coming to musical life. Arlene Philips is behind the choreography, which sees the actors perform on roller skates. Plus, the show was originally directed by Trevor Nunn. 

Lloyd Webber explained: "I am thrilled that Starlight Express will be powering down the tracks again. The world's first truly immersive musical will this time be an experience like no other. Watch out for the big new plot twist, and you will discover why steam power is the future of the railway."

Sheppard added: "Nothing comes close to the thrill of Starlight Express, and it's a privilege to be directing this brand-new production, which will bring audiences right up close to all the music, the wonder and the action that makes this show so iconic. We hope it will take London by storm all over again, and be both a celebration of this legendary work, as well as passing the train set to a new generation in a big, bold, and reimagined way."

The new production of Starlight Express in London brings together a creative team. The show is directed by Luke Sheppard, set design is by Tim Hatley, and costume design is by Gabrielle Slade. Plus, Arlene Philips returns as creative dramaturg.
