Five Broadway shows we hope transfer to London in 2016

1. FUN HOME

One of the most ground-breaking productions ever to hit Broadway, Fun Home is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

Based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir, Fun Home is a refreshingly honest musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, a blazingly original heartbreaker and a nonstop treasure of invention.

2. FINDING NEVERLAND

Finding Neverland is the new Broadway musical that tells the fascinating story of how Peter became Pan.  Originally staged at Curve Leicester, following so-so reviews it was extensively re-written and given the Gary Barlow treatment.  Based on the Academy Award®-winning film of the same name, it has been brought to extraordinary life by Gary Barlow and the team behind Shakespeare in Love, Chicago and Pippin.

3. THE KING AND I

Bartlett Sher’s Broadway revival of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The King and I has captivated audiences and critics alike, winning four 2015 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical and Best Costume Design of a Musical.

Based on Margaret Landon’s 1944 novel “Anna and the King of Siam,”  The King and I  is a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of East versus West. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, it boasts a score which features such beloved classics as Getting To Know You, Hello Young Lovers, Shall We Dance, I Have Dreamed and Something Wonderful”.

4. LAZARUS
