Stepping Out is one of those marvellous musicals that leaves you feeling good, warmed to the cockles of your heart as well as amused. It's a lovely show and this revival has already thrilled audiences around Britain. Now it's coming back to London, an eagerly awaited treat for spring 2017. If you've always wanted to see this modern classic of a comedy musical, now's your chance.

The popular Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden leads a glittering cast of stars including Angela Griffin, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson, and it's on at the Vaudeville theatre.

Stepping Out – The story

Meet eight amateur dancers, all from very different backgrounds. They've ended up taking tap dancing classes in a tatty North London church hall, and each has their own reasons for joining. At first they treat the class like a social occasion, and they're all fingers and thumbs. But they soon 'get' tap dancing and become reasonably skilled. It's their personal stories, relationships and interactions that form the real story, charting their emotional progress as their tap-dance skills improve.

In attempting to tap their troubles away, the group grows close. Haughty Vera and loud, mouthy Maxine, uptight Andy and bubbly Sylvia, shy Dorothy and eager Lynne, happy Rose, patient Mavis and the lone male, Geoffrey, are all spurred on by pianist Mrs Fraser, and the result is a genuinely uplifting, gentle and fascinating comedy.

The show originally premièred in Leatherhead in the '80s before moving to the West End, with Barbara Ferris and Marcia Warren starring, and enjoyed extended runs in theatreland and on Broadway. It ran for just short of three years in the West End, an impressive stint. Between the 1980s and today it has rarely been off the stage in one part of the world or another.

This latest musical version, called Stepping Out—The Musical, has a book by Richard Harris, lyrics by Mary Stewart-David, and music by Denis King. It first opened at Plymouth's Theatre Royal and has been adapted for US audiences by Astrid Ronning and Nina Seely, renamed 'One Night A Week'. This time around it's directed by the talented Maria Friedman, the three-time Olivier Award winner, who made her name by wowing audiences with 2012's acclaimed production of Merrily We Roll Along. This is a brand new and totally fresh staging, and it's already causing anticipation in London. Grab tickets while you can!

Press Reviews

Amanda Holden serves up comedy gold in this foot-tapping treat. Tracy Ann Oberman, Lesley Vicarage, Judith Barker ...terrific, Anna Jane Casey supreme The Telegraph

Maria Friedman's glorious production. Britain's Got Talent and then some. Fabulous. Daily Express

Golden Holden commands the stage. Amanda Holden...every inch the leading lady. A production crammed full of hilarious eighties gags and fabulously over the top outfits. The Sun

Amanda Holden ...wonderful, Dominic Cowan...great comic timing, Judith Barker...brilliant. Raises the roof. The Times

Very enjoyable

A fun show to watch with believable storyline. Amanda Holden's costumes and hair do, are a sight not to be missed.


London Box Office customer

A night full of humour and dance

We really enjoyed the show because it was so funny and yet touched on everyday perplexities. The dancing was pleasurable to watch at the end .


London Box Office customer

Funny especially if you remember the 80's

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Good fun show

London Box Office customer

Good light hearted fun!!

If you are into tap dancing it's a good show. The first half was a little slow at times although the second half was very good. It's light entertainment which is an easy watch after a long week at work.

Not what I expected... disappointing.....

Just seen this last night as this was a Mother's Day present to my Mum. I paid much more than I normally would to see a show but we had great seats in the stalls with a perfect view. I have seen many musicals since living in London for 9 years, However, I found it overall disappointing, after seeing two other Musicals in the last week, Stepping Out was not on par with other West End Musicals and I feel this is not West End standard. Stepping out is more of a play but it lacked something. It was still good fun, enjoyable, the whole cast are excellent and I was still left with a bit of a 'feel good factor'. Tracey Ann Oberman is particularly very good and very funny. Amanda Holden is also very talented. The orchestra (if there was one? if there was, it must have been very small as limited music) Only one song that I remember. The stage scenery was virtually the same throughout the whole show, apart from towards the end. The whole cast were clearly talented, but the very short, less than 10 minutes dance show at the end, made me feel that I was left short changed! Sadly, unlike other shows, I won't be seeing this one again.

Great Entertainment

It was a good show, and Amanda Holden was great - I had forgotten how good an actress she is! Personally, I thought the film was excellent, and I found myself comparing the two, which is very unfair. If you have never seen the film, then I think you will love this show.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

Very good - loved all the cast


London Box Office customer

Very funny

I really enjoyed the show..It made me really laugh...Amanda Holden played her part brilliantly ...They all did but i feel Amanda stole the show...


London Box Office customer

Laugh out loud.

London Box Office customer

Very funny

I am not a theatregoer but wanted to stop so i picked this show as it was a comedy. This is very funny. Very good show. Not for teenagers as they wouldn't get the humour but adults will love it. Would recommend.


London Box Office customer

Good fun 2 hours

London Box Office customer

Thoroughly enjoyable

Entertaining and easy to watch show


London Box Office customer

Very real and well acted

London Box Office customer

Great afternoon.

The only problem is the cost of tickets. I paid £74 50 each for seats in the dress circle. Seats G9 and10. They were on sale at £54 50 at the box office.Disgraceful!!!!!!!

THE MISER & STEPPING OUT: Is it worth seeing three star shows?

21 Mar 2017 in News

Three Star shows If you ask most people who work in the theatre they’ll tell you they hate the system whereby shows are allocated a quality rating of 1 – 5 stars. It means audiences make a snap judgement based on the scoring and don’t take time to consider the content of the review and decide for themselves whether they’ll enjoy a production or not.

How the West End is mirroring the Wild West

26 Sep 2016 in News

Stepping Out The remake of classic western THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN has just hit cinemas so it feels apt that two new shows have been announced that utilise the same story structure.

Let me explain. The movie itself is adapted from THE SEVEN SAMURAI which is thought to be the first significant time a plot has been used in which a maverick leader assembles a team comprising off conflicted and conflicting members who then work together to conquer a challenge.
