Last week, we shared some exciting upcoming shows at the Forum and Princess Theatres, and this week, we’re sharing even more! Read on to see what’s coming up at the Regent and Her Majesty’s Theatres. Don’t forget to pre-book your parking at Le Garage.
My Fair Lady
Julie Andrews directs this spectacular re-imagination of the classic story of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins.
Andrews herself starred as Doolittle in the stage show from 1956 to-59, and now, she aims to introduce the charming story to a new generation of audiences.
Andrews is joined by choreographer Christopher Gattelli, set designer Oliver Smith, and costume designer Cecil Beaton.
The show debuted last Friday and runs until 27th July, before making its way to Sydney from 24th August.
Her Majesty’s Theatre
You ain’t never had a friend like me!
Aladdin, Jasmine, the Genie, that magic carpet, and the evil Jafar transform from animation to real life in this spectacular production.
The cast is young, fresh, and full of life, and with a genie that rivals the original beloved character, this show will have real sentimental value for Robin Williams fans.
The musical, based on the beloved 1992 Disney animated film made its debut in Seattle on 2011, and since then, has made its way through the US, Europe, Asia, before finally reaching Sydney in August, 2016.
Aladdin made its Melbourne debut at Her Majesty’s Theatre in April and will run until late November. You can see dates and prices on Ticketek’s website.
