UK premiere of Muriel’s Wedding The Musical announced

Australian producers Global Creatures have announced that the highly acclaimed “Muriel’s Wedding The Musical” will premiere in the UK at Leicester’s Curve theatre. Performances are scheduled to run from April 10 to May 10, 2025.

Carmen Pavlovic, producer for Global Creatures, expressed her excitement, stating, “We are immensely proud to be partnering with Curve to bring Muriel’s Wedding The Musical to the stage. UK audiences just ‘get’ the wonderfully flawed and quirky character of Muriel Heslop, who captures our hearts with her indomitable spirit. We can’t wait to bring this beloved story to life and share it with audiences in such an inspiring venue.”

Director Simon Phillips added, “I’m thrilled that the team at Leicester Curve have embraced Muriel Heslop with the same open heart as the rest of the world. Muriel’s misguided aspiration has never been funnier or more on-the-money, and now that it’s not just ABBA doing the singing, but the whole of Porpoise Spit, Sydney, and even the Olympic swimming team, her self-made journey to stardom has doubled the decibels. Curve has an enviable track record of delivering exciting new musicals, and it’s a privilege to be adding Muriel to their list.”

“Muriel’s Wedding The Musical” has garnered significant acclaim, winning five Helpmann Awards, seven Sydney Theatre Awards, an Awgie Award, the 2018 David Williamson Prize, and an ARIA Award Nomination. The musical celebrated its world premiere in November 2017 in a co-production with the Sydney Theatre Company and returned for an Australian tour in 2019. It was praised as a smash hit by critics and audiences alike.

Global Creatures, based in Sydney, specializes in producing original theatrical works. The company’s portfolio includes critically acclaimed productions like “Walking with Dinosaurs — The Arena Spectacular,” “How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular,” “Strictly Ballroom The Musical,” and “King Kong.” “Muriel’s Wedding The Musical” toured Australia in 2017 and is now set to enchant UK audiences in 2025.

Their production “Moulin Rouge! The Musical” premiered in Boston in 2018 and later transferred to Broadway, where it won 10 Tony Awards® including Best Musical. It continues to play on Broadway, the West End, and is touring North America and Cologne, Germany. The show will also open in Tokyo and Osaka in June this year and premiere in the Netherlands in late 2024.

Beloved theatre community, where to start? 

Reviews are a staple of what we do here at Theatre Haus, it’s where we started – complimentary reviews in exchange for complimentary tickets to events. They aren’t without their controversy, and so, we wanted to lay it all out on the table – the good, the bad and the complicated.
