The show, which first premiered in London in 2000, will return at the Sondheim Theatre on Monday 20 June 2022 with a special concert performance.

Maria Friedman will direct with musical staging by Stephen Mear.

Olivier Award-winning actor Giles Terera will star as Darryl Van Horne with further casting to be announced.

Tickets are on sale from 10AM on Thursday, 17 March.

The Witches of Eastwick tells the tale of the people of the little town of Eastwick. It is a town where everyone knows everything about everyone else, and it is presided over by the indomitable Felicia Gabriel.

Bored with their small town lives, three women – Alexandra (Alex), Sukie, and Jane–share a desire for “all manner of man in one man” to provide excitement and variety. That man arrives, literally in a flash, in the devil-like form of Darryl Van Horne. Darryl seduces the women and teaches them powers, which they never knew they had.

Maria Friedman, who appeared in the original cast, said “I’m so incredibly excited to be revisiting Eastwick after all these years. To be reunited with the fantastic Stephen Mear and to have the opportunity to bring this beloved musical back to London, and at the simply stunning Sondheim Theatre, for one night only is an absolute thrill and I can’t wait to get started.”
