Based on the hit film of the same name, the show has a score by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tom Kitt, with lyrics by Miranda and Amanda Green. Book is by Jeff Whitty. It first opened in the US, going on to be nominated for a number of Tony Awards.

It is also said to be working with the transgender community to finalise casting.
The show will play eight performances at the New Theatre in Peterborough from 26 November 2021 to 4 December 2021, before it transfers to the Southbank Centre for a run from 8 December to 22 January 2022.
