Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth - it's no secret that Shakespeare famously penned a large majority of iconic plays in English-speaking theatre, and his reign over Broadway is never-ending.

Whilst Shakespeare's name conquers any stage in the West End, this year Broadway needs to make room for one of the most unique, musical reinterpretations of Twelfth Night - only at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London!

One of the best musicals of 2024 is coming to London

Based on the literature landmark that is Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and remixed with efforts from director Sheldon Epps and author Cheryl L. West, Play On! invites you to a Jazz-based musical rendition of the playwright's favourite production. 

Meet Vy, a talented songwriter looking to make it big in the 1940's Harlem scene. 

However, Vy's Uncle Jester quickly teaches her that women will never be taken seriously in a man's world. But like the strong, independent woman she is - Vy refuses to back down and accept defeat. 

Through her gender fluid cunning, she meets The Duke, a club owner and friend of sensational nightclub singer, Lady Liv, in New York's Cotton Club's jazz scene. 

Follow Vy as she is swept up in a syncopated symphony of melodies, mistaken identities and romance!

Shakespeare live in London - with a musical twist!

Directed by Michael Buffong (A Kind of People, Royal Court; All My Sons, Talawa and Royal Exchange) combined with a soundtrack from Duke Ellington and street dance choreography, Play On! will wow audiences with a music spectacular that'll have you desperate to dance!

Book tickets now for Play On! and experience one of the best theatre productions live in London's West End!
