This revival of Starlight Express throws open the doors to a world heavily influenced by the sleek, high-tech aesthetic of Tron. After a successful original run that spanned over 3 decades, the show is being brought back to life under the direction of Luke Sheppard, a rising star known for his work on &Juliet and The Little Big Things. Sheppard has assembled a fresh-faced cast, with many making their professional debuts, like Jeevan Braich, Kayna Montecillo, and Al Knott. There is also a focus on inclusivity, with new characters and a revamped script reflecting a more modern approach.

The Story

Rusty, the underdog steam engine, dreams of winning the affection of Pearl, a first-class observation car. But his path to glory is riddled with challenges. Greaseball, the arrogant diesel engine with a thirst for victory, and Electra, the sleek electric engine, stand in his way. Will Rusty overcome the odds and achieve his heart's desire? Book your tickets to Starlight Express in London and find out if love conquers all, even in the high-octane world of competitive trains!
