The War of the Worlds

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's.

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful adaptation. Musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm recreate deadly heat-rays, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale. The chances of success? A million to one.

WHY? ‘Part alternative rock band, part thespian. Wholly charming’ The Times

The King and I from the London Palladium

180 mins.

Recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium. The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers.

WHY? ‘Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit’ The Times

‘We left the London Palladium on a bright cloud of music - joyous!’ Daily Mail

‘Looks and sounds ravishing. Complete rapture’ The Telegraph
