Sometimes a show hits exactly the right mark for everyone who comes across it. Caroline, or Change, does exactly that. No wonder the Evening Standard calls it a 'modern masterpiece'. Five stars from the Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday and Daily Telegraph agree. Head for the beautiful Playhouse theatre to experience Caroline, or Change, an Olivier award-winner that's set to enthral London audiences with its humour, depth and imagination.

The show transfers to the West End in late 2018 after sell-out stints in Chichester and Hampstead, a brilliant piece written by Tony Kushner whose legendary Angels in America made his name. There's a gorgeous musical score from the Tony Award-winner Jeanine Tesori and the show stars Sharon D. Clarke in an performance so good it has been widely tipped as 'virtuoso'.

The setting is Louisiana in 1963. There's revolution in the air, but the maid Caroline is still paid peanuts, still working in a sweltering basement for the Gellmans. 8 year old Noah Gellman, whose mum has just died, loves the basement's clean, steamy comfort but when he decides to leave more money in Caroline’s pocket, he unwittingly tests for whom and how far the winds of change have actually come.

This show snagged an Olivier Award for Best New Musical, an accolade that proves its excellent dramatic credentials. It's playful, funny and deeply moving, and the score keeps pace in the most wonderful way, with soaring tunes designed to break your heart... then mend it again. Expect a brilliant blend of spirituals, blues, Motown, classical music, plus Jewish klezmer and folk music.

The show is beautifully directed by Michael Longhurst and the action starts at the Playhouse Theatre from 20th November 2018. Grab tickets while you can, since it's on for a strictly limited run.

Who is this show for?
This is a grown up show for people aged 16 or over, dealing with themes that a younger audience is unlikely to understand properly or appreciate.
