Why go and see it?

Tim Minchin, award-winning comedian, actor and composer, will return to the stage for his first UK tour dates since 2011.

Minchin has been celebrated globally for writing the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical, which has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed musicals of the last 20 years, winning a record seven Olivier Awards, 13 Helpmann Awards and five Tony Awards. It continues to run in the West End and has already played in over 50 cities worldwide. He also wrote music and lyrics for the musical adaption of Groundhog Day, which after an acclaimed limited run at The Old Vic in London in 2016, debuted on Broadway in April 2017 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical in 2017.

The music virtuoso also announced that profit from a number of top price seats will be donated to a UK charity – details of which will be announced through his website soon.

A thing of jaw-dropping wonder.

What the critics say

He's several entertainers in one: a brilliant pianist, an affectless standup comic, a lyricist of intoxicating flair, and – as if that weren't enough – a man with important, inspiring things to say about the world.
- The Guardian
Tim Minchin is a genius, pure and simple. He is to musical comedy what Charles Darwin was to evolution and what Einstein was to physics and moustaches. You'd be hard pushed to find a more sublimely talented comedian.
