18-22 Greenside Place
The Edinburgh Playhouse is situated on Greenside Place, at the top of Leith Walk and close to the east end of Princes Street. This is less than 10 minute's walk from Waverley Station, 5 minutes walk from the bus station and on various major bus routes.
The Bill Kenwright production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic hits the road in 2012 and as part of this anticipated endeavour the Edinburgh Playhouse becomes the home of “Starlight Express” in July. Audiences in the Scottish capital will have the opportunity to revisit a classic West End show, which entertained audiences for the first time in 1984 and still remains popular to this day. It is a tale that will capture the imaginations of those with theatre tickets all over again and ensure that audiences keep on returning to this futuristic musical for years to come.
The rock musical sees a team of toys come to life inside the imagination of a young boy. These toys are miniature railway trains and as a result the characters embark on a mission to find out who is the fastest engine by racing one another. It features an explosive soundtrack, high energy spectacle, speed and some electrifying choreography, culminating in a memorable show.
Among the original choreographers was Arlene Phillips, who lent her skills once again in 2012, with music from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe and Don Black on lyrical duties.
And it all heads to Edinburgh in the same year as “9 to 5 the Musical” and “Phantom of the Opera”, among others, ensuring some great musicals are in town to entertain audiences in the Scottish capital.
“Starlight Express” is at the Edinburgh Playhouse from Tuesday 3rd July 2012 to Saturday 14th July 2012.
