Thriller Live extends West End booking to April 2016

Thriller Live has extended its West End booking period at the Lyric Theatre to 17th April 2016!

Last month Thriller Live celebrated the start of its record-breaking 7th year in the West End. On 25th January, with its 2,530th show at the Lyric Theatre, Thriller Live became the 19th longest running musical in the history of the West End. On Sunday 12th April, the show will overtake Oliver! to take the 18th position.

Producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol said: "We are thrilled that Thriller Live goes from strength to strength, setting new records and passing even more impressive West End milestones and we are looking forward to another year at the Lyric Theatre. It is such a feel-good show that it’s a feature of our celebration of the music and dance moves of Michael Jackson that our audiences are usually up on their feet dancing in the aisles by the end of the show. 

"We now want them to encourage them to dig into their pockets and give as much as to Comic Relief as they can as our cast do bucket collections at the theatre exits. Michael Jackson dedicated much of his life to helping those less fortunate in the world and we believe that Comic Relief through their work around the globe are carrying on that great and worthy tradition.”

Thriller Live continues to set and break records and visit new territories around the globe. It has been performed in 28 countries from South Korea to Norway, and South America to China. The latest world tour is currently playing in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia for the first time - the 29th, 30st and 31st countries to present it.
