Ben Elton is a multi-award winning novelist, playwright, television writer, screen writer and lyricist. He is also a theatre, screen and TV Director, a stand-up comedian and a very occasional actor. Back on the road with an all new stand-up show, Ben promises to try and make sense of a world which appears to have gone stark raving mad.
As Ben says: "The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn."
Just give him a stage and a microphone and Ben Elton is the best. No contest.- The Sunday Times
There is nothing, absolutely nothing to beat Ben Elton live!- Evening Standard
The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise. In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town!
The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491 Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
