New musical La Bamba! announces London dates

Richie Valens inspired new musical La Bamba! – A Brand New Dance Musical will play a limited season in London’s West End this Summer.

La Bamba! will open at the Peacock Theatre, Sadler’s Wells West End venue, for a limited season on 22 August 2023 until 2 September 2023, with tickets on general sale on 27 March 2023.

Choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing favourite and Italian Latin champion Graziano Di Prima, La Bamba! tells the story of Sofia, a young LatinX girl in Pacoima, California. A girl with a big heart and even bigger dreams. Much like Twyla Tharp and Billy Joels’ Movin’ Out, the story of La Bamba! will be told predominantly through dance accompanied by a live onstage band.

The show is directed by multi-award-winning American director Ray Roderick, with music by award-winning Alfonso Casado-Trigo and associate choreography by Giada Lini.

Prior to its London run, La Bamba! will open at Curve in Leicester on 1 August 2023 as part of a previously announced UK tour.

Inspired by the life and legacy of Rock ‘n’ Roll legend, Ritchie Valens, and featuring a sensational soundtrack of some of the most popular songs of the 20th century, La Bamba! smashes together musical and dance styles from contemporary R&B to Latin folk music.
