Overview

Experience the epic emotion and soaring music of The Prince of Egypt, the extraordinary new musical from three-time Academy Award®-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked).

Journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt as two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.

Based on the acclaimed DreamWorks Animation film, and featuring the Academy Award®-winning, chart-topping song ‘When You Believe’, The Prince of Egypt is an exhilarating, powerful and joyous celebration of belief and the human spirit.

The Prince of Egypt is produced by DreamWorks Theatricals (a division of Universal Theatrical Group), Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw.

Critic reviews

An earnest, delightful mess

Exeunt

Explosive dancing, clever magic tricks, great costumes, brilliant use of video backdrop, stunning special effects and faultless voices

· Musical Theatre Review

It’s only fair to report that the audience around me seemed entirely satisfied and were very enthusiastic with their whoops

· London Box Office

It may not work miracles, but as a stage version of an animated classic, The Prince of Egypt delivers in spades

· WhatsOnStage

The most memorable element of the show is Sean Cheesman’s fantastic choreography

· Londonist

While newcomers will know no different, I fear fans of the film will be left wanting to return to the animation

· A Younger Theatre

There are moments in The Prince of Egypt which are truly stunning, but there are just as many that fall flat

· Theatre Weekly

This mammoth stage adaptation is more splashy than spiritual

· The Arts Desk

The songs are sublime in Stephen Schwartz’s adaptation of his Biblical cartoon, but the rest is a muddle

· Time Out

Inconsistent stage adaptation of the animated film that boasts a great score by Stephen Schwartz but lacks atmosphere and magic

· The Stage

Moses' story told in good faith and with blistering bible-belters

· The Telegraph

A confused story, poor performances and mediocre songs – THE PRINCE OF EGYPT is extremely disappointing

· West End Wilma

Struggles to deliver any miracles of its own

· The Upcoming

This new stage adaptation unfortunately defies little other than the audience's patience

· Broadway World

Little imagination in the telling of the production

· London Theatre

Babylon goes to Vegas but loses its stardust

· The Guardian

Two men's internal struggles overshadow beefed-up musical

· Evening Standard
