Dirty Rotten Scoundrels based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end! From the company which brought you ‘My Fair Lady’ & ‘Oklahoma’. Wed 24th April: All seats £14 All other performances: £16, Concessions £15 (50p of every ticket goes to the Regent Centre Development Fund)

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus. Tickets: £18.50, Concessions: £16.50, Child (under 16): £10 Sung in French with English subtitles Approximate running time: 225 minutes including one interval

Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her – along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) – to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs Tickets: Stalls: £6.50, Concs £6, Child (U16) £5.50.

Maiden tells the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989. Tracy’s dream met opposition on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it; the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure; potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew, she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men. Contains infrequent strong language, references to sexism.

The '60s group Manfred Mann is now considered, more than ever, one of the finest and most respected bands from that era. Their numerous hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance. As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 55 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man, Paul Jones, will be performing many of their hits, including ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’, one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the ‘60’s, and still the biggest audience pleaser at their concerts, along with a mix of Jazz and Blues covers and tracks from their individual solo albums. Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Mike Hugg on keyboards, Tom McGuinness on guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute.

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

When you start out retro, you don’t expect to become true originals – but that’s the position The Puppini Sisters (Marcella Puppini, Kate Mullins and Emma Smith) are delighted to find themselves in. In the ten years since they began, it’s extraordinary how many others have followed their trailblazing lead, whether it’s the gorgeous close harmony singing style, the swing-style re-workings of modern pop songs, or their impeccable retro-futuristic fashion sense. With four albums under their waist-cinching belts and a fifth one under way, the Puppini Sisters are now regarded as the world’s leading close-harmony group, and count Prince Charles, The Manhattan Transfer and Michael Bublé amongst their fans. The group was founded in 2004 by Marcella Puppini after she was inspired by the animated film Belleville Rendez-Vue (2003), and in 2005 they were signed by Universal Classics and Jazz. Since then, the group have been awarded a Gold Disc and a Multi Platinum disc, have collaborated with Michael Bublé and have appeared on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including Koko and The Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, l’Olympia in Paris, The Great Hall of Conservatory in Moscow, The Greek in L.A., B.B. King’s in New York and Glastonbury Festival.

Henry Ashton (Enrico), Lucia’s brother, who detests the Ravenswoods, lies to his sister telling her that Edgardo has betrayed her and married someone else. He then forces her to marry another nobleman, Arturo. Lucia is devastated and so deep in her grief that she starts to lose her sanity.

Edgardo knowing nothing of her madness, agrees to a duel with Enrico and vows to kill him. In the famous Mad Scene - a magnificent vehicle for the coloratura soprano - Lucia imagines she is together with Edgardo and about to be married, but sadly, she collapses and dies.

Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand with a brand-new UK tour. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation - and a talking ice cream - all using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy. It's a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there's not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life! Don’t miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent and one of Britain’s finest entertainers. ‘’The best ventriloquist Britain has discovered for many years...’’ The Stage “If you think the words ‘brilliant’ and ‘ventriloquist’ have no place in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education” Evening Standard Tickets £20.50 Age guidance: 15+ only

The estimable London 4-piece Turin Brakes are delighted to announce a UK Acoustic Tour starting Autumn 2019.

This is a chance to see the band in their first full stripped back acoustic tour since way back in 2002. They will be playing a range of songs spanning their 20 year career - which includes seven top 40 singles and 6 top 40 albums with sales over a million worldwide. www.turinbrakes.com Tickets £20.50 (including our 50p development fee)
