About: Once Upon a Time at the Adelphi

London Premiere of the award winning hit musical

Following a sell-out extended run at the Liverpool Playhouse and a 2008 TMA award for best musical, 'Once Upon a Time at the Adelphi' finally arrives in London in an energetic new production.

1930’s Liverpool, and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood pour off the luxury liners for their first taste of England: a night in the city’s most fashionable hotel.

Amidst all the decadence, no-nonsense Alice from reception has fallen for the dashing Thompson from accounts – but fate, Hollywood, two wars and a dizzying array of staff and guests intervene in an epic love story spanning 60 years.

Written and directed by multi-award winning Phil Willmott, whose previous musicals include 'Dick Barton – Special Agent', 'A Christmas Carol' and 'Around the World in 80 Days'.
