Following a sold-out season in Manchester, Burlesque the musical will play a season in Glasgow and a return season in Manchester prior to a West End run.
Burlesque the Musical Tour & West End
Following an unprecedented sold-out season at Manchester Opera House in June, producers of the World Premiere of Burlesque the Musical – the first ever stage adaptation of Steven Antin’s crowd-pleasing musical sensation, Burlesque which starred Christina Aguilera, Cher, Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci – today announced that the production will make its Scottish Premiere in Glasgow in September, and return to the Manchester Opera House in October, prior to a West End transfer.
With performances in Manchester from Thursday 13 June until Saturday 29 June 2024 already sold out, producers have confirmed a return season in the city from Thursday 3 October – Saturday 2 November 2024. Tickets go on sale on Friday 26 January 2024.
Christina Aguilera, who will serve as the Executive Producer of Burlesque the Musical, said “Burlesque was my first feature film — and creating the role of Ali along with co-writing the music was a part of my career that I will always cherish. I am so happy to be reunited with Steven, this time behind-the-scenes as an Executive Producer and contributing songwriter for our new stage version. Recreating Burlesque as a live theatre experience is something I always hoped would happen, and here we are!”
WHAT IS BURLESQUE THE MUSICAL ABOUT?
Welcome to Burlesque the Musical, the glamorous, gritty and outrageously fun new musical based on the much-loved hit movie.
Discover a club like no other…a place beneath the city lights where the sequins sparkle, seduction shimmers, and a life can change in the flick of a feather boa.
When Ali heads to New York in search of her mother, she finds herself drawn into a dazzling underground world where the beat of the music and the heat of the dance moves will change her life forever. Among this unlikely family of misfits, dreamers and schemers, Ali will unwittingly find her real voice, discover her talent, and find where she really, truly belongs.
