Snugly tucked in the heart of West End is one of the largest theatres of its time, the Piccadilly Theatre. With an epic entertainment history extending across musicals, ballet, and plays; the Piccadilly is currently home to Strictly Ballroom the Musical and The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Our guide below will help you find ways to get Strictly Ballroom the Musical London tickets at the best prices.
About the Show
Strictly Ballroom the Musical is a musical theatre adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's award-winning film Strictly Ballroom. The original production was set in motion in Australia before making a West End debut with the finest actors, singers, and dancers. Its hilarious storyline not only inspires the world to dance, but also creates an applaudable satire on the glitz and glamour of it all. Featuring over 30 classic hits (including Time After Time, Let’s Dance, Sway (Quien Sera), and Mambo No. 5), the glorious musical syncs relatively well with the performer's athletic skills and slapstick comedy throughout the play. It is every bit classy, heartwarming, and charming. The show is scheduled to continue through October 20, 2018.
Strictly Ballroom follows Scott Hastings, a rogue championship ballroom dancer who defies the rules of the competition to follow his heart and compete with his left-footed, shy partner Fran. It’s an inspiring story of two beguiling dancers who discover that in order to be a winner; your steps need not be strictly ballroom. There is nothing vapid about this dazzling production as each character adds a dance move that leaves the audience in awe.
