Only Fools and Horses The Musical has announced plans to reopen in London’s West End!
Performances will resume at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on Friday, October 1 after being forced to pause due to the pandemic. Tickets are on sale now here.
The reopening will mark the 40th anniversary year of the legendary TV show.
Comedy giant Paul Whitehouse will return to star as Grandad with Tom Bennett as Del Boy and Ryan Hutton as Rodney. Further casting is to be confirmed.
Paul Whitehouse said: “I’m over the moon because, finally, the West End is coming back to life and Only Fools and Horses The Musical will return to the Theatre Royal Haymarket this October.
“The last year or so has been very difficult for a lot of people, so I know I speak for the whole cast when I say that we genuinely cannot wait to get back on stage in front of a live audience – we’ve missed it so much. Roll on 1st October, we can’t wait to see you. Mange tout!”
