Starlight Express in London

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical Starlight Express is back in town for 2024! A brand new production of the old favourite on stage in a purpose-built, specially designed Starlight Auditorium at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre venue. Performances begin on 8th June 2024.

A fresh new production of Starlight Express

The original production of Starlight Express wowed audiences at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in 1984, directed by Trevor Nunn and choreographed by Arlene Phillips. It ran for more than seven thousand four hundred performances before closing in early 2002. Billed as a fully immersive audience experience of speed, song and storytelling, it’s wonderful to see it back.

This is the second musical produced by Lloyd Webber Harrison Musicals, a fresh new partnership between Andrew Lloyd Webber and the respected West End producer Michael Harrison.

Lloyd Webber is delighted. As he said, “I am thrilled that Starlight Express will be powering down the tracks again. The world’s first truly immersive musical will this time be an experience like no other. Watch out for the big new plot twist and you will discover why steam power is the future of the railway.”

The Story of Starlight Express

The plot focuses on a child’s train set that comes to magical life, keen to become the world’s fastest train. But until he hears the legend of the Starlight Express, little Rusty has very little hope of winning the prize and winning the heart of the lovely first class carriage called Pearl.

A cast of forty people will zoom above and around the audience on roller skates as they sing their hearts out to classic Lloyd Webber tunes like 'AC/DC', 'Only He', 'Make Up My Heart', 'Light at the End of the Tunnel' and of course the iconic 'Starlight Express' itself.

Starlight Express cast and creative team

The cast will be announced soon. The creative team for this exciting new production will be led by acclaimed director Luke Sheppard (&Juliet, The Little Big Things), set designer Tim Hatley (Back to the Future), costume designer Gabriella Slade (SIX), video designer Andrzej Goulding (Life of Pi), lighting designer Howard Hudson (&Juliet) and sound designer Gareth Owen (MJ The Musical). Arlene Phillips who has been involved with the musical since its initial and first opening in London back in 1984 will be the creative dramaturg. Starlight Express will feature new orchestrations and musical supervision by Matthew Brind.
