⭐ BURLESQUE THE MUSICAL – WORLD PREMIERE ANNOUNCED – MANCHESTER OPERA HOUSE – JUNE 2024 ⭐
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 – will have its world premiere at the Manchester Opera House, it has been announced.
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 the bright lights of New York in search of her long-lost 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.
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 theater experience is something I always hoped would happen, and here we are!”
