We wanted to go through some of the mega musical revivals coming soon! These are brand-new productions rather than existing revivals – (eg the return of the five-star The Last Five Years in the West End, or Back to the Future's West End premiere.). Who knows, we may also one day the delayed Sunday in the Park with George

Little Women

The London premiere of the musical, based on Louisa May Alcott's seminal 1868 novel, is coming very soon! The cast has also been revealed. From 11 November.

Eddie Redmayne and Jessie Buckley will star in this in-the-round, epic retelling of one of the greatest musicals of the last century. The Playhouse Theatre is being completely transformed into "the Kit Kat Club", in what can only be described as a "hot ticket". From 15 November

The Wiz

A Black British take on the iconic musical is very much one thing we're excited to see very soon! You can find who's appearing here. From 24 November.

A Chorus Line

We've really hoped to get it for a few years, so it's exciting to see Curve in Leicester present A Chorus Line – the meta-musical with some iconic numbers. From 3 December

The Almeida hasn't done a musical revival in, well, ever – so this is a massive moment for the north London space. The fact Amara Okereke and Laurie Kynaston are leading the cast is icing on the cake. From 14 December

Billy Elliot

How do we describe how excited we are for Billy Elliot's first UK revival? We can't really explain it, we haven't got the words…Curve Leicester, from 7 July 2022

Sister Act

Oh boy, Sister Act was met with a chorus of praise when first announced in 2019. But here's the kicker – the show's script is being rejigged to reflect the different actor ages. Not too shabby! We can't wait to find out who's involved after its lengthy delays. Summer 2022

The Wizard of Oz

Strictly Ballroom

Kevin Clifton leads this new adaptation of Baz Luhrman's classic – which is sure to be a jam-packed dance extravaganza – especially with director Craig Revel Horwood's involvement! Tour opens in September 2022
