Paul Whitehouse to return to Only Fools and Horses The Musical at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Actor and comedian Paul Whitehouse is returning to his hit musical comedy Only Fools And Horses at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Paul Whitehouse, who originated the role of Grandad in the musical and co-wrote the show, will return to play Grandad from 9 January.

The show had already announced that it was extending its dates into next year, and will now be booking slightly longer, to 29 April 2023 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Whitehouse said in a press statement that: “I can’t wait to be back in Grandad’s armchair next year after a bit of a break – many thanks to Les Dennis who’s been keeping it warm for me! It’s incredible to still be playing to packed houses week in, week out and I’m thrilled that the show is extending the run yet again. Mange tout!”

Directed by Caroline Jay Ranger, and featuring music by John Sullivan and Chas Hodges, the show has been seen by more than 700,000 people since it opened in February 2019.
