Soho Cinders Charing Cross Theatre tickets now on sale!

A new production of the enchanting musical Soho Cinders, which is a reimagining of Cinderella with a Soho twist, is coming to the Charing Cross Theatre in London at the end of October for a special, nine-week run that you won’t want to miss, especially if you're a fan of fairytale endings! The show features catchy lyrics from Anthony Drewe and spectacular music written by George Stiles, who along with Drewe served as writers for the National Theatre’s Olivier Award-winning musical, Honk!.

What is the Soho Cinders musical about?

Soho Cinders follows Robbie, a broke and penniless student who becomes romantically entangled with James Prince, a candidate running for London’s mayor who just so happens to be engaged. Soon James’ stripper step-sisters become the least of his worries as his new forbidden love becomes more taboo than a lap dance. Robbie and James’ worlds collide and their happily ever after won’t come without a fight. Paying tribute to London’s rainbow district filled with colour, political involvement, sex scandals, and real love, Soho Cinders is a delectably devious, noxiously naughty musical update of the beloved Cinderella fairytale complete with an addictive score that will have you whistling to its tune long after the clock strikes twelve!

Who is on the Soho Cinders creative team?

Soho Cinders is directed by Will Keith and features a book by Anthony Drewe and Elliot Davies, set design by Justin Williams, choreography by Adam Haigh, musical direction by Sarah Morrison, associate musical direction by Joe Louis Robinson, and casting direction by Harry Blumenau Casting. The musical is produced by Will Keith for Theatre Syndicate London and Starting Over Theatricals Ltd in association with Kyle Tovey for AKT Management.

A background on Soho Cinders, including its development

After their hit musical Honk! Took home the Laurence Olivier Award at the National Theatre back in 2000, frequent collaborators Anthony Drewe, George Stiles, and Elliot Davies sat down in Regent’s Park and discussed what their next big project would be. They wanted to pick a subject matter that would both be challenging and blow its audiences away. Their ideas began to evolve and they knew they wanted to write about the City of London, why people have become so fascinated by Downing Street politics, and about how love gets complicated. 

After coming up with a premise, the glue that would hold their ideas together to create a coherent tale was that of a popular fable. The main theme of their fairytale musical is a love that grows between two people who come from completely different backgrounds and generations and what they are able to bring to each other. Loosely based on Cinderella, Soho Cinders is very dear to the creators, who claim that their collaboration immediately became a jovial and happy affair after Elliot Davies came onboard as the show’s co-bookwriter. They are happy to see their show return to The Big Smoke in a new production headed by Will Keith.

Soho Cinders first premiered in 2011 as a gala concert production at the Queen’s Theatre (now named the Sondheim Theatre) in support of Teenage Cancer Trust. It received its full-scale world premiere in an Off-West End production at the Soho Theatre in 2012, which starred the likes of Olivier Award-winning actress Jenna Russell (Sunday in the Park with GeorgeThe Bridges of Madison County, Urinetown) and the voice of English actor and comedian Stephen Fry (Mythos: A Trilogy - Gods, Heroes, and Men) as narrator. The musical was last revived in 2016 for another Off-West End at the Union Theatre.

Great show, really funny with some fantastic performances. Not the biggest production in the West End but well worth a look.

Deborah Lyons9th January

Didn't know what to expect but what an amazing show laughed so much and even cried! Fantastic production but highlight has to be the stepsisters who were outstanding!

margaret atkins5th January

There were five of us, it was a very entertaining evening and the dancing and singing were excellent.

Harry Matthews5th January

Brilliant script, excellently executed in a great venue. Top performances by all, especially Robbie and the twins, and the cast all looked like they were having a ball. Thoroughly recommend!

Roel Panken5th January

It was such a fun show!

Frances Allberry5th January

Not been to this theatre before. What a great little place, hidden under the arches between Charing Cross and Embankment stations. Every now and again during the performance, you hear the train rumbling gently overhead, which is endearing rather than problematic. I would never have gone to this show had it not been for my teenage daughter. She wanted to see it with a couple of friends. Soho Cinders is a modern and very London take on the fairy tale, which had flaws and was uninspiring on the whole but it was entertaining, which is why we were there! The lyrics and one particular performance was at times excruciating to watch. This is clearly not a mainstream West End production or venue and I can see why the run is short!

Kunde4th January

I sat in the first row and you really felt involved. Funny. Puns matched modern politics and just plain heartwarming. I really hope Velcro got to keep that damn Goldfish

Mr Andrew Spargo1st January
