News   Starlight Express Heads Back to the Tracks to Tour U.K. Beginning in May 2012
 
Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1984 musical Starlight Express, which played 7,461 performances during its nearly 18-year run at the West End's Apollo Victoria Theatre, is heading back to the U.K. stage, with a new touring production due to depart from New Wimbledon Theatre for a run that begins May 10, 2012.

More dates are still to be announced. The new production is being presented by Bill Kenwright, by special arrangement with the Really Useful Group. According to press materials, "Light years ahead of the rest, this futuristic tale about love and hope in the face of adversity promises to take you on the ride of a lifetime – with two hours of speed, spectacle, energy and turbo charged excitement, combined with an electrifying sound track, dazzling sets and costumes, extraordinary roller-choreography and some of Andrew Lloyd Webber's most memorable musical hits."

The show has also been seen on Broadway, where it played the Gershwin Theatre for 761 performances from March 1987. It also continues to run in a permanent production that has been playing in Bochum, Germany, since 1988.
