Look who’s back! Don’t miss Michael Ball reprising his Olivier Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad

“The iconic, inspirational & uplifting musical is on for a limited run, starring Michael Ball in his critically-acclaimed role. You just can't stop the beat!”

Overview

Following a record-breaking run at Shaftesbury Theatre in 2007, the iconic, inspirational and fabulously uplifting musical arrives at the magnificent London Coliseum for a limited run, starring Michael Ball in his critically-acclaimed role.

Baltimore, 1962. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and big dreams. Can she make it on the local TV dance show, win the heart of teen heartthrob Link Larkin and bring everyone together – whatever their colour, size or hairdo? Well if you want a change, you’ve really got to shake things up!

From the original award-winning creative team of director Jack O’Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, and featuring the infectiously feel-good songs Good Morning Baltimore, You Can’t Stop the Beat and Big, Blonde and Beautiful this huge-hearted, smash-hit musical sensation is back and bigger than ever.

Tickets are in very high demand for the 12-week run. Don’t miss out - book now!
