Listed as the most recommended show of 2022 and 2023, the production won the 2023 Olivier Award and WhatsOnStage Award for Best Musical Revival, with Arthur Darvill also collecting the Olivier for Best Actor in a Musical. The show also won the Critics’ Circle and Evening Standard Award for Best Musical, and Best Musical Performance for Patrick Vaill.
The producers have set aside a number of £10 tickets for Monday – Wednesday performances that are offered directly to those currently under-represented in West End theatre audiences.

Reimagined for the stage by Daniel Fish, the production played a sold-out run at the Young Vic last year, having previously transferred to Broadway from St. Ann’s Warehouse winning the Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.
