Only Fools and Horses the Musical in London

Starring:

Paul Whitehouse, Ryan Hutton, Tom Bennett

Trigger's dodgy briefcases. Del Boy and Rodney break the chandelier. The broom gag. Batman and Robin costumes... oh, the memories. TV's Only Fools and Horses delighted several generations and still rates as one of Britain's funniest ever, best-loved, most often quoted sitcoms. Now it's in theatreland. Don't miss this hilariously silly, delightfully fun show.

About Only Fools and Horses The Musical

Add the brilliant Paul Whitehouse, who wrote The Fast Show (suits you, Sir!) and is apparently Jonny Depp's favourite ever comedian, to the mix and you're in for even more of a treat. He's the co-writer along with Jim Sullivan, the son of the sitcom's original creator John Sullivan. And the show takes place at a stunningly lovely venue, the magnificent Theatre Royal Haymarket, from February 2019.

The original TV characters were played by Sir David Jason, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Lennard Pearce. For the musical Paul Whitehouse plays the part of Grandad, and you can bet your bottom dollar that'll be a giggle. Tom Bennett plays Del Boy and Ryan Hutton plays Rodney.

The musical combines classic scenes from the original TV show with new material and new gags. It also stars old favourites Boycie, Trigger, Marlene and Denzil.

The show features 20 dazzlingly silly new tunes and the late Chas Hodges, from the Cockney duo Chas and Dave, played a part in composing them. John Sullivan died in 2011, while working on the show, but it has been wholeheartedly, fully endorsed by his Estate.

Only Fools and Horses The Musical – The Story

Set in the year 1989 the plot sees Del and Rodney in love with Raquel and Cassandra against a Peckham landscape that's changing fast. The writers have been as faithful as possible to the feel of the series, but have also crowbarred in some contemporary issues in a seriously clever way.

The dazzling legacy of Only Fools and Horses is being admirably carried on thanks to this heart-warming and extremely funny show. It's packed with favourite moments from the TV show, including the infamous chandelier scene. Laugh? You'll laugh yourself silly. What a great British treat.

Excellent, a must see for any Only Fools & Horses fan

Whilst I'm a massive Only Fools fan, I was unsure how it could be made into a musical without losing the original story and humour that always made it an iconic tv program, especially without the original cast. I decided to book anyway and take my girlfriend for our anniversary and I am glad we did. It was a fantastic show, great actors who were absolutely spot on with the voices and mannerisms of each character, especially Rodney who sounded exactly like the original and Boyce got the laugh to a T, in fact all the cast were brilliant. Lots of iconic moments were captured in the show with a few other subtle references to other iconic storylines from the tv series. Overall, great show, great cast & acting, a must see for anyone but especially if you're an Only Fools fan. Finally we sat in the stalls row J and the seats were perfect.
