'Frankie Goes to Bollywood is electric throughout'

Musical Theatre Review

Expect dazzling dance, epic songs and sweeping romance in this new musical drawing on real stories of British women navigating the glitzy world of Bollywood.

From the makers of Britain’s Got Bhangra comes a new musical about Bollywood’s lure.

Frankie never wanted to be a star, but after a chance encounter with a director, she finds herself transported to the ruthless world of Bollywood.

As she climbs the sparkling staircase of stardom, Frankie must confront what she is willing to do for fame and fortune. Can she stay in the Bollywood family and still be true to herself?

With heroes and villains, ornate costumes and spectacular sets galore, get ready to be swept off your feet by this tale of being British in Bollywood.

A Rifco Theatre Company, Watford Palace Theatre and HOME Manchester co-production. Supported by Arts Council England, TV partner Sony Pictures Network, Lyca Radio, and MAC Cosmetics.
