The Time Traveller’s Wife: A New Musical Tickets London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Time Traveller’s Wife: A New Musical is the thrilling new show based on Audrey Niffenegger’s international sensation – The Time Traveller’s Wife – a best-selling novel and worldwide hit film

Brought to life on stage with music and lyrics by multi-Grammy Award winners and global music superstars Joss Stone and Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, and from the acclaimed West End producers of Back to The Future and Ghost, this is a heart-racing and devastatingly theatrical journey like no other.

Their love story is like no other. And yet, it’s like all others. They meet, fall in love and marry – but not in that order. Henry travels through time and through Clare’s past, present and future. Their love is the ultimate test and the greatest of romances, beset with surprises, pain and adventures.

What's the story of The Time Traveller’s Wife?

The story is about Henry and Clare’s love story, an ordinary love story but that is like no other: they meet, flirt, fight, love, marry… but all out of order. Henry is often and uncontrollably ripped out of time, because he suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets, pulling him into his past or future, vanishing before one’s eyes, never knowing where or when he’s going next. Except he knows he’ll always come back to Clare, whether she’s 5 years old playing in a field or 85, dreaming of her time-travelling husband.

New musical The Time Traveller’s Wife set for West End run
A new musical adaptation of the acclaimed book The Time Traveller’s Wife is set to premiere in Chester this year, ahead of a West End transfer. Audrey Niffenegger’s best-selling novel, and the subsequent movie screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin, have been adapted into a musical by playwright Lauren Gunderson (I and You, The Book of Will), with music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Joss Stone and The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, and additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan. Produced by Colin Ingram for InTheatre Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Teresa Tsai and Crossroads Live, the show will premiere at Chester's Storyhouse theatre on 30 September until 15 October 2022, and there are then plans to bring the show into London. The Time Traveller’s Wife will be directed by Bill Buckhurst, who is directing this year's revival of Sister Act at the Eventim Apollo, and designed by Anna Fleischle. Choreography is by Shelley Maxwell, lighting design by Lucy Carter, sound by Richard Brooker, video design by Andrzej Golding, illusions by Chris Fisher, musical supervisions and arrangement by Nick Finlow, orchestrations are by Bryan Crook and casting by Stuart Burt. The casting of the show is yet to be announced. The story is about Henry and Clare's love story, an ordinary love story but that is like no other: they meet, flirt, fight, love, marry… but all out of order. Henry is often and uncontrollably ripped out of time, because he suffers from a rare condition where his genetic clock periodically resets, pulling him into his past or future, vanishing before one's eyes, never knowing where or when he's going next. Except he knows he'll always come back to Clare, whether she's 5 years old playing in a field or 85, dreaming of her time-travelling husband. Audrey Niffenegger told the press that: "I am thrilled that my book is being adapted for the stage and with the very talented artists who are creating the musical. I am really looking forward to seeing what they do with it." Colin Ingram, who is a producer of Back to the Future which is currently playing at the Adelphi Theatre in London, said that he was "delighted to be bringing this incredible new musical to the 750-seat Chester Storyhouse for a two-week run prior to a transfer to the West End and beyond." Dave Stewart and Joss Stone said of working together on the new musical, "We have been on many crazy adventures together but we've never 'Time Travelled' till meeting Lauren Gunderson. Writing these songs together whilst being in different locations on different time zones has been a trip (literally), throwing us into an eddy of emotive melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics to go with the push and pull of this unusual love story. We all time travel in our relationships and in our lives in general, but to write something that people will see and hear happening live on stage is thrilling to imagine, and hearing Bill Buckhurst's interpretations of Lauren's script for stage as we went along has been so inspiring."

‘The Time Traveller’s Wife’ musical in development with Joss Stone and Dave Stewart
A musical stage adaptation of The Time Traveller's Wife is in development with Grammy Award winner Joss Stone and Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart penning music and lyrics. Audrey Niffenegger’s best-selling novel will be adapted for the stage by playwright Lauren Gunderson. The piece is a love story between a man with a genetic condition that intermittently drags him into the past or future, and a woman anchored in her linear timeline, who becomes his wife. Lauren Gunderson said of adapting the novel, "I will never forget reading the last chapter of Audrey Niffenegger's book over ten years ago and being floored by its thunderous emotion and potent humanity.  I knew this love story belonged on stage with music and vision that matches its emotional punch and soaring feeling.  I know this musical will lift, delight, hearten and exhilarate.” Dave Stewart and Joss Stone said of working together on the new musical, “We have been on many crazy adventures together but we’ve never ‘Time Travelled’ till meeting Lauren Gunderson.  Writing these songs together whilst being in different locations on different time zones has been a trip (literally), throwing us into an eddy of emotive melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics to go with the push and pull of this unusual love story.  We all time travel in our relationships and in our lives in general, but to write something that people will see and hear happening live on stage is thrilling to imagine, and hearing Bill Buckhurst’s interpretations of Lauren’s script for stage as we went along has been so inspiring.” Set to premiere in the UK later this year or at a push in early 2022, the show is helmed by Bill Buckhurst with musical supervision and arrangement by Nick Finlow, additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan, and illusions by Chris Fisher. Casting, dates and venue to be announced.  The production will be produced by Colin Ingram for InTheatre Productions, by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures.
