About Death Note The Musical

Following its UK premiere at the London Palladium, the visually spectacular new show Death Note The Musical will play six performances at the Lyric Theatre from 7 to 10 September 2023.

Based on the Japanese manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note boasts a score by Frank Wildhorn (Bonnie & Clyde, Jekyll & Hyde), with lyrics by Jack Murphy (The Civil War), book by Ivan Menchell (Bonnie & Clyde, The Nanny).

Winner of four Korea Musical Awards, the story centres on Yagami, a high school student in Tokyo who accidentally discovers a Death Note owned by Ryuk, a mythological God of Death.

Yagami realises he can kill anyone, just by writing their names in the supernatural notebook, and he starts to wield his power by murdering criminals as an act of justice.

As his killing spree continues, a police detective known as L begins to work on the case…

Death Note premiered in Japan in 2015, and has played three runs in Korea, with the latest run closing in June 2023.

The Japan and Korea productions utilised giant LED screens on all sides of the stage to create a variety of environments, using technology to take the musical theatre experience on to the next level.

Death Note The Musical will play in concert at the Lyric Theatre from 7 to 10 September 2023.

  1. I think there’s a typo with 2025 in this paragraph on your website… … Death Note premiered in Japan in 2025, and has played three runs in Korea, with the latest run closing in June 2023.
