The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

MAKE EVERY SECOND COUNT

It was all just a matter of time. And finally, the wait is over.
The foot-stomping and award-winning musical, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, arrives in London’s West End after capturing hearts and selling out at
Southwark Playhouse.

With a breathtaking soundtrack brought to life by an extraordinary actor-musician ensemble,
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic short story is relocated to a fishing villa
ge on the north coast of Cornwall by writing team Jethro Compton and Darren Clark.

Under the light of a full moon, something most curious occurs… Benjamin Button is born old. Bound to the fate of growing younger each day, Benjamin wants nothing more than to live a little life.
But will he ever
find a place to belong
? Only time and tide will tell…

An electrifying journey through the timeless tale of a love that defies all odds, join us with friends and loved ones at the Ambassadors Theatre for a unique chance to catch this enchantingly beautiful and truly unordinary new musical. You’ll love every second.
