Get Set For Spring At Belgrade
As excitement builds for Coventry’s year as City of Culture in 2021, the Belgrade Theatre is gearing up for an incredible season in Spring 2020, with tickets already booking up fast for a whole host of hotly anticipated shows.
West End smash hit musical SIX is set to take the city by storm when it arrives in Coventry from 2-7 June, telling the tale of Henry VIII’s six wives as you’ve never heard it before. Now reborn as pop princesses, these Renaissance queens take to the mic to reclaim their stories, remixing 500 years of historical heartbreak into a celebration of women standing strong together.
Musical fans can also look forward to the multi-award-winning international hit Once, which heads to Coventry from 10-14 March as part of its first ever UK tour. Based on the critically acclaimed film, this touching tale of unlikely romance includes the Oscar-winning song “Falling Slowly”. Then from 17-21 March, Willy Russell’s ever popular Blood Brothers is back at the Belgrade with the return of Bill Kenwright’s phenomenally successful production.
Hot on the heels of its sell-out West End season and American tour, Stephen Daldry’s visionary National Theatre production of An Inspector Calls plays in Coventry from 28 April-2 May, reimagining JB Priestley’s classic in a version that’s been described as the theatrical event of its generation. Meanwhile, from 3-7 March, Sally Cookson’s Olivier Awardwinning A Monster Calls brings to life Siobhan Dowd’s and Patrick Ness’ ,heartbreaking story of love and loss in spectacular style.
Don’t miss the hilarious Friendsical from 26-30 May, a unique musical parody of Warner Bros’ iconic TV sitcom Friends; or Alan Ayckbourn’s masterpiece of 70s suburban social climbing in Absurd Person Singular, a potent mix of farce and black comedy showing from 6-9 May.
All of these shows and more are available to book individually or as part of My Belgrade subscription packages, entitling you to 15% off tickets for 3 or 4 shows, or 25% off tickets to 5 or more.
