Written by Tony Kushner, author of legendary play Angels in America, and featuring an exceptional score from Tony Award-winning Jeanine Tesori, Caroline, Or Change stars Sharon D. Clarke in an astonishing "virtuoso performance" (The Times).

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Caroline, Or Change is a playful, funny, and deeply moving tale set to a score that hits new heights of emotion, in a production that always delights with imagination.

Directed by Michael Longhurst (Amadeus, Constellations), this vital and timely musical is transferring to the Playhouse Theatre from 20 November 2018 for a strictly limited season.

And we have tickets on sale right now from just £22.

Here's the trailer from the Hampstead production ...
