Following the phenomenal audience and critical acclaim, McQueen transfers to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season from 13th August.
A mysterious girl has been hiding in a tree in McQueen’s Mayfair garden for the past eleven nights, secretly watching him as he struggles to find inspiration for his new collection. Tonight she climbs down and breaks into his house to steal a dress she could never afford to buy, in the hope of becoming someone special. Together, they go out onto the streets of London and into the whirlwind of McQueen’s life. As the girl begins to unravel before him, it becomes clear that she needs more than her dream dress to see her through the night. With its beauty, the world invites us all to live another day, and with each other, two troubled souls may just find the comfort they so desperately crave.
McQueen will take you on a beautiful and haunting voyage into the visionary imagination and dark dream world of the late Alexander McQueen, fashion’s greatest contemporary artist.

A very different play but excellent. Very moving and haunting experience. Actors were first class

Loved it. Creative and interesting.

Very disappointing. Having expected some real insight into the life of McQueen and to be able to enjoy looking at some of his creations it was instead a navel-gazing, disjointed series of rather pretentious introspection. Had hoped it might be enlivened by the appearance of Tracy Ann Obermann but, of course, she didn't appear last night! It merits one star by virtue of the staging which was very good.

Amazing, amazing, amazing

Was a little disappointed. The whole play seemed stuck on his mental anguish... Yes I get it! He was dark but it showed hardly anything of his brilliance.. And not enough of the feel of the fashion world for me... I wanted a bit of fierce mixed with my tortured genius.

I had bought cheap tickets in the Gods and took four friends. I had loved the McQueen exhibition at the V&A and was keen to see the show. However, reviews were not great so I had started to have very low expectations. Perhaps that had an impact, but actually we all really enjoyed our evening. We were upgraded to the stalls and I was totally engrossed all the way through. I thought it was REALLY well acted, I totally believed it was Alexander on the stage. The dance helped the performance flow and I felt the pain of the loss of an amazing creative force. Shame it wasn't full, but that was our gain, the critics can really break a play.

Very entertaining but very sad at the same time.The explicit language and black humour added to the performance to make it a very Mc Queen experience
Elizabeth Lambert5th September
Thoroughly enjoyed play, excellent cast, script and staging. Very kindly got given upgrades too, thank you!

Fantastic Stephen Wight did a perfect take on Lee and the show was funny raw and very thought provoking . An insight into two genius troubled contemporaries .
Nicola Downer3rd September
Very disappointing play. The dancing was good, music excellent, sets interesting and the acting very good but the content was dreadfully flat. Both my husband and the husband of a friend left at half time.

The settings and choreography evoked memories of his designs. The ending was so poignant knowing his demise.

The mix of voice, dance and visuals was great. It helped me, a poor scientist, understand life issues such as what influences creatives? And why do so many commit suicide? When buying tickets from London Theatre Direct remember that all you get is a voucher, which you then have to swap at the box office for a ticket - allow time for this bureaucratic process.
