Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia! and Book Of Mormon Extend
Three High Profile musicals Add New Dates at their West End Homes
Three well known musicals that continue to entertain audiences in London’s West End have added new dates so that crowds can continue to pick up theatre tickets well into 2015. Both Jersey Boys and Mamma Mia! at the Piccadilly Theatre and Novello Theatre, respectively, add new dates to October 2015 whilst The Book of Mormon extends at the Prince of Wales Theatre until March.
Jersey Boys is the popular jukebox musical that chronicles the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, from their early days right up to the release of some of their best known hits like Sherry and Walk Like A Man. It has been running at the Piccadilly Theatre since March 2014 following many years at the Prince Edward Theatre and its continued presence is a testament to its enduring appeal.
The production is now taking bookings at the West End’s Piccadilly Theatre for dates up to Sunday 25th October 2015.
Mamma Mia is another jukebox musical, this one focusing on an original story amplified by the hit songs of ABBA. It follows a mother and daughter on a Greek island, the latter of whom is about to get married and wishes to know the identity of her father. Consulting her mother’s diary, she narrows it down to three men and promptly invites them all to the wedding, causing great discomfort for her mother.
The production moved to the Novello Theatre in September 2012 and it is there that it now takes bookings for performances up to Saturday 24th October 2015.
The reason that Mamma Mia! moved from its previous home of the Prince of Wales Theatre was to make way for The Book Of Mormon, which continues at that West End location following its opening in March 2013. From South Park and Avenue Q creators Trey Parker & Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, the comic musical follows Mormon missionaries who attempt to spread the word of their religion in Uganda, only to find it more difficult than originally planned.
It is now booking at the Prince of Wales Theatre for performances up to Saturday 7th March 2015.
