The Distance You Have Come description

The Distance You Have Come – A beautiful brand new musical experience

Like so many things, this gorgeous song cycle seems to mean even more in the covid world we're living in, a world that has made everything about life feel more precious. It's on at the Apollo Theatre, and it's set to delight adult audiences with its frank and very lovely exploration of the lives of six people, each of whom is searching for their own unique version of happiness.

What's the plot of The Distance You Have Come?

Each day sees every one of us making a series of decisions. Some are important, others fleeting and small, but together they create the mosaic of life, driving lifer's ever-changing patchwork. On our journeys of self discovery we do our best to juggle life, love and loss. We choose our own pathways and we meet people along the way who change the course of our futures.

This is the world explored by The Distance You Have Come, a song cycle of Scott Alan's best-loved and most highly acclaimed music. The tunes are sung by some of the West End's finest voices, led by Alan himself, the award winning composer and lyricist. Together you'll explore a year in the lives of six people, which intertwine to create all the joy and heartache of the human condition as they search for happiness.

Covering themes that include depression, heartache and love, the show follows the characters' ups and downs in a plot that's both moving and heart-warming, told via the songs' extraordinary lyrics. This is a sparkling new musical that collects Alan's best-loved works together for the very first time, and it's set to be a huge hit.
