Three star-led musical concerts, accompanied by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, will be presented at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in August 2022

Kicking off the season is ABBA’s iconic Chess, starring Samantha Barks (Frozen, Les Misérables) as Florence and Hadley Fraser (2:22 A Ghost Story, City of Angels) as Anatoly, with further exciting casting to be announced soon.

This will be followed by Cyndi Lauper’s uplifting Kinky Boots with Cedric Neal (Back To The Future, Motown The Musical), as Lola/Simon, Matt Willis (Busted, Waitress, Wicked) as Charlie and Courtney Bowman (Legally Blonde, SIX) as Lauren.

Brand new musical Treason will complete the August concerts, making its live stage debut at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Treason has already garnered a global audience following its streamed concert from Cadogan Hall in March 2021 and successful release of six tracks on streaming platforms.

Leading the cast for the first live outing of Treason are Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables, Heathers) as Martha Percy, Les Dennis as Robert Cecil and Simon-Anthony Rhoden (Hamilton, Kinky Boots) as Robert Catesby.

The dates for each concert are; Chess – 1 August 2022, Kinky Boots – 8 August 2022, Treason The Musical – 22 August 2022.
