NOW That’s What I Call A Musical

In partnership with Universal Music UK, Sony Music Entertainment & Mighty Village.

Get ready to relive the playlist of your life at the brand-new British musical; NOW That’s What I Call A Musical.

With an original book by award winning comedian Pippa Evans and direction and choreography from Craig Revel Horwood, NOW celebrates 40 years of the iconic and chart-topping compilations brand, which have sold an estimated 200 million copies worldwide.

It’s Birmingham, 1989. Two school friends, Gemma and April, are busy with very important business – planning their lives based on Number One Magazine quizzes and dreaming of snogging Rick Astley. Cut to Birmingham 2009 and it’s the most dreaded event of their lives– the school reunion. Drama, old flames and receding hairlines come together as friends reunite and everything from the past starts to slot into place. The biggest question is: what was with all that hairspray?

NOW That’s What I Call A Musical makes its world premiere in September 2024 prior to a full UK tour.

Pippa has written a script that takes you right back to sharing your Walkman headphones with your best friend, escaping the boring day to day and dancing like nobody is watching. I can’t wait to get started.
