LIMITED WEST END SEASON
Move over Cats - It's time for a mole!
This joyous new musical adaptation of Sue Townsend‘s best-selling book The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾ -The Musical arrives in London for a strictly limited season!
A timeless tale of teenage angst, family struggles and unrequited love, told through the eyes of tortured poet and misunderstood intellectual Adrian Mole. One of the most enduring comedy characters of all time, he’s the hapless, hilarious, spotty teenager who captured the zeitgeist of 1980s Britain.
With an infectious score and a script as sidesplittingly outrageous as the original novel, this critically acclaimed production brings Adrian’s story to life for a new generation of theatregoers.
Book and lyrics by Jake Brunger, music and lyrics by Pippa Cleary, directed by Luke Sheppard.
I mean, what a performance! Michael’s Adrian Mole was such an exciting pleasure to watch! He was played exactly as I always imagined whilst reading the diaries. Thank you!
The show was brilliant as well as the cast. Especially Pandora (Matilda Hopkins) and Nigel (Cuba Kamanu) 💝. As well as brilliant it was also extremely funny, very well done. We went twice as it was my granddaughters birthday🎂🥂🎂
Fantastic production. I was a bit worried as my 11 year old son didn't know who Adrian Mole was or what it would be about and it was also his first time going to the theatre, but he loved it. Would highly reccomend.
I never read the books or saw the tv series but was aware of the stories. It does not matter. This is a funny romping look at growing up .The songs were catchy, moved well , outstanding performances from the cast who play multiple roles The set is economic and is moved seamlessly by all cast. .a great night out.
Really great entertainment for a Saturday evening. Good humour and we thought the small cast did an excellent job with not only acting but changing the stage sets at the same time.
I took my 12 year old granddaughter although we enjoyed it and thought it amusing I wasn’t happy with the sexual connotations also the nativity scene with that red plastic placenta was revolting and unnecessary
As a fans of all things Adrian Mole for 40 plus years we looked forward to seeing him immortalised in music. The show was very good and the character of Adrian was very well portrayed alongside all the other popular figures. The first half was enjoyable but the second half was fantastic. The finale had the audience up on our feet and dancing to the music . A great night.
I took my eleven year old Granddaughter. My Granddaughter commented that she thought it was true to the book she had just finished. However, I did think as a Grandparent that the relationship between the husband and the Neighbour was taken a bit too far and could have been toned down a bit for children to watch! Otherwise a great performance.
Excellent , really funny , worth seeing
