Strictly Ballroom | London

Baz Luhrmann’s stunning musical Strictly Ballroom the Musical comes to the West End’s Piccadilly Theatre for a strictly limited run, directed and choreographed by Olivier Award-winner Drew McOnie. Last seen at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2016, the show is based on Luhrmann’s 1992 film of the same name.

Strictly Ballroom is the romantic story that was embraced around the world, and went on to put the Strictly into Come Dancing! Based on the multi award-winning movie, the first instalment from Baz Luhrmann’s acclaimed Red Curtain Trilogy, the musical production is a kaleidoscope of colour and fun. When rogue championship ballroom dancer Scott defies all the rules of competition to follow his heart, he teams up with left-footed partner Fran to win the National Championship his own way. Their love blossoms as their routines flourish, and together they triumph in bringing down the sequin-clad regime of the Dance Federation.

Based on a short play written by Luhrmann in the 1980’s, Strictly Ballroom became his first ever film and is one of the highest-grossing Australian movies of all time. Making up the Red Curtain Trilogy, which also features Romeo & Juliet and Moulin Rouge, the film went on to be adapted into a musical in 2016 by Luhrmann and Craig Pierce.
