Extensions for Book Of Mormon, Stomp and Les Miserables
Three Long-Running west end shows Add New Dates
Three of the West End’s high profile shows have added new dates at their respective homes, giving audiences plenty of new opportunities to pick up theatre tickets. Both The Book of Mormon and Les Misérables have extended to dates in 2016 whilst Stomp at the Ambassador’s Theatre goes even further by extending to January 2017.
The Book Of Mormon is one of the most popular musicals in town and has been ever since it opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre back in 2013. Since then people have flocked to witness the comedy and it continues to draw in the crowds.
Penned by South Park’s Trey Parker & Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, it tells the story of Mormon missionaries who head out to Uganda to spread word of their religion. However, the locals are more concerned with disease and famine.
The show has added new dates at the Prince of Wales Theatre, where it still plays, and is now booking to Saturday 9th January 2016.
Stomp, meanwhile, has been running in the capital longer, having first emerged in the West End in 2002 at the Vaudeville Theatre before finding its current home at the Ambassadors. The percussive musical sees performers utilise a range of household items to create an elaborate spectacle. Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, it draws in crowds in the West End and has also proven popular on tour.
And now those crowds have more chances to see the show as tickets go on sale for performances leading up to Sunday 8th January 2017.
Finally, the West End’s longest running musical Les Misérables edges closer to its 30th birthday, which it celebrates in October 2015, and it will mark the occasion with a gala performance. As the show continues to be popular it will continue well past that date as well as it extends to October 2016.
Set in Napoleonic France, it sees a cat and mouse chase between Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert across many decades. It opened at the Barbican in 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre later that year and now runs at the Queen’s Theatre, where it is now booking to 1st October 2016.
