Three Shows Add New Dates at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Harold Pinter Theatre and the Shaftesbury Theatre

Three high profile musicals have added new dates recently, with the long-running The Phantom of the Opera extending its long run at Her Majesty’s Theatre until September 2015, Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon adding new dates to May 2015 and new hit Memphis The Musical extending to October 2015.

The Phantom Of The Opera is one of the most famous shows in the capital, having opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in 1986 and second only to Les Misérables as the longest running musical in the West End. The story focuses on the eponymous Phantom, a mysterious, disfigured composer who lurks beneath the Paris Opera House and pines for a beautiful opera singer called Christine Daaé.

It celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011 with a large production at the Royal Albert Hall, whilst international versions have ensured that the show is a global brand.

Its West End journey, meanwhile, is set in stone for some time to come. Its current booking extension means that theatre tickets are now on sale for dates up to Saturday 26th September 2015.

Sunny Afternoon only recently opened at the Harold Pinter Theatre, having transferred there from the Hampstead Theatre. The musical is based on the music of The Kinks and follows the group’s rise to fame as many of their hit songs are performed onstage. The Kinks’ own Ray Davies is a producer of the show, whilst Edward Hall directs.

The production maintains its run at the Harold Pinter Theatre and has now added new dates to take it to Saturday 23rd May 2015.

Finally, Memphis The Musical is another new addition to the West End landscape, having opened last month, and tells a story set in Memphis in the 1950s. It focuses on a white radio DJ, Huey, who introduces audiences to the music of a black singer, Felicia, with whom a romance blossoms as well, at a time in which prejudice is all around them. It is based on the true story of DJ Dewey Phillips.

The production is now booking at the Shaftesbury Theatre for dates up to Saturday 31st October 2015.
