Caroline, or Change

‘A MODERN MASTERPIECE’ Evening Standard

Don’t miss the extraordinary and joyously original CAROLINE, OR CHANGE, as the five-star, Olivier award-winning musical transfers to the West End this November following sell-out runs at the Chichester Festival and Hampstead Theatres. 

Written by Tony Kushner, author of legendary play Angels in America, and with an exceptional, soaring score from Tony Award-winning Jeanine Tesori, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE stars Sharon D. Clarke in an astonishing “virtuoso performance. To watch her seems a privilege” (The Times).

Louisiana, 1963. Revolution is in the air, though not so much for Caroline, the poorly paid maid toiling endlessly in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household. It’s a fantastical, magical place amidst the piles of laundry and singing washing machines, especially for eight-year-old Noah Gellman who sneaks downstairs to see her whenever he can. Yet a simple gesture to leave more money in Caroline’s pocket is about to test who and how far the winds of change can ever really reach… 

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 opens at the Playhouse Theatre from 20 November 2018 for a strictly limited season.

    Took my mother on her 77th birthday surprise and was blown away by the whole experience. Made us both cry and the performance was outstanding. Music was amazing and all actors involved in this performance looked like they were having a great time. Thank goodness got to see before the curtains finally closed on this performance. Thanks you to all for helping to make my mums birthday a success and making a proud woman proud of her own heritage. From a very appreciative daughter ThankYou...Roxanne McKenna

    I was not sure what to expect and was a little unsure when I found out it was mainly singing but have to say this was a very entertaining show. The singing and acting was great, well done cast!! I would recommend this play.

    I thought it was rubbish. Great singing and dancing but the storyline was bitty and of no substance. They could have made a lot more of the stories of the era. Rybbish
