Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sensational Starlight Express explodes back onto the stage with a new Bill Kenwright production, set to take Milton Keynes by electrifying storm.
Starlight Express opened at the Apollo Victoria in London’s West End in 1984 where it ran for over 7000 performances, it is one of the most successful musicals ever.
This futuristic tale about love and hope in the face of adversity promises to take you on the ride of a lifetime – with two hours of speed, spectacle, energy, daredevil stunts and turbo charged excitement, combined with an electrifying sound track, dazzling sets and costumes, extraordinary roller-choreography and some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most memorable musical hits.
Internationally renowned choreographer and popular television judge Arlene Phillips is back on board as Director and Choreographer. Arlene choreographed the original West End production and directed and choreographed several subsequent productions of the show. Her extensive credits also include The Wizard of Oz, Saturday Night Fever, The Sound of Music, Grease, We Will Rock You and Jesus Christ Superstar.
