Extended 3 weeks, The Grinning Man must end 5 May. Do not miss your last chance to see this tremendous new musical!

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret.

London’s critically acclaimed new British musical The Grinning Man, now playing at the Trafalgar Studios, has announced a final extended three week booking period until 5 May. This is the very last chance for West End audiences to see this adored, award-winning production set in a fantastical world with a dark heart. Directed by Tony-award winning Tom Morris (War Horse) The Grinning Man has enchanted audiences again and again, receiving wildly enthusiastic standing ovations at every performance.

From Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse), Kneehigh writer Carl Grose and featuring “an outstanding score” (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler, The Grinning Man is a magical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables).

Set in a fantastical world created by designer Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell), and brought to life with the “astonishing puppetry” (What’s on Stage) of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers, The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness at the Trafalgar Studios.

Louis Maskell (My Fair Lady, West Side Story), recently nominated for Best Performance in a Musical for his role in the Bristol Old Vic production, will again lead the cast in the title role of Grinpayne, the show’s disfigured hero.

Book The Grinning Man tickets now to avoid disappointment. Absolutely must end 5 May.
