CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

ABBA's Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, the songwriters of the musicals 'Chess' and 'Mamma Mia!', are presenting, for one night only, the UK premiere of the concert version of their epic musical 'Kristina'. The concert will feature a cast of over 30 performers led by the original Kristina, Helen Sjöholm, along with Russell Watson, Louise Pitre and Kevin Odekirk, accompanied by a 50-piece Symphony Orchestra, consisting of the finest musicians hand-picked by Isobel Griffiths, and the Choir who performed at the Carnegie Hall concerts, all conducted by Paul Gemignani. 'Kristina' tells the story of one woman and her family's struggle in Sweden and their subsequent emigration to America in search of a better life. Originally produced in Sweden, this moving musical has won awards and critical acclaim and is the most popular musical theatre piece in Swedish history. For the concert version, English lyrics have been written by Björn Ulvaeus and Herbert Kretzmer, who also wrote the English lyrics for 'Les Misérables'.
