London’s most anticipated new shows: 3–9 September 2018

Here’s our Monday morning digest of the 5 new shows Stagedoor users most excited to see this week…

1. Heathers the Musical

Runs from Monday 3 September until 24 November 2018 at Theatre Royal Haymarket

Heathers at the Other

After wowing audiences at The Other Palace over the summer, this musical theatre sensation hits the West End in a hilarious and colourful riot of 1980s nostalgia.

2. Foxfinder

Runs from Thursday 6 September until 5 January 2019 at the Ambassadors Theatre

Olivier-winning actor and star of Game of Thrones and Misfits, Iwan Rheon, leads the cast in this dystopian thriller. The play won the Papatango New Writing Award in 2011 and finally hits the West End

3. Missing by Gecko

Runs from Thursday 6 September until 15 September 2018 at Battersea Arts Centre

When the Battersea Arts Centre’s Grand Hall burned down in 2015, it was half way through a run of Missing by acclaimed physical theatre company Gecko. The Grand Hall reopens this week and picks up exactly where it left off. The show must go on!

4. We Know Not What We May Be

Runs from Wednesday 5 September until 9 September 2018 at the Barbican Centre

From AI and robotics to responses to climate change, this performance installation takes big ideas and puts you at the heart of a collaborative and immersive experiment.

5. Misty

Runs from Saturday 8 September until 20 October 2018 at Trafalgar Studios

Following a critically-acclaimed sold-out run at the Bush Theatre, Arinzé Kene is a visceral blend of theatre, gig and performance poetry. Misty delivers an epic, heartfelt and playful exploration of creative freedom, set against a pulsing vision of modern London.
