‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ Musical Set For West End Transfer

Latest West End News

Darren Clark and Jethro Compton’s new musical The Curious Case of Benjamin Button based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic short story will transfer into the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre this October.

Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of a man who is born old and ages backward is relocated to take place in a fishing village on the northern coast of Cornwall by writing team Darren Clark (lyrics & music) and Jethro Compton (lyrics & book).

Commenting on the forthcoming West End transfer, Compton, who also directs the production, said: “This show has gone on the most incredible journey over the last seven years. What’s even more incredible, is the journey is only really just beginning. Button started life as a scrappy little show with a big heart, but the love it’s been shown by our audiences has allowed it to grow into something ready for the West End. We’re so unbelievably grateful for everyone’s support – and we can’t wait to continue this journey with you all.”

The production enjoyed a sold-out season in 2023 at the Southwark Playhouse, winning the ‘Best Musical Theatre Production’ category at the 2024 Off West End Awards.

Full casting and the wider creative team for the production are to be announced in due course.

Booking & Theatre Info For The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button 

The Ambassadors Theatre is a small West End venue with a capacity of 410 seats on two levels. Premium seats in the theatre are located in the front two rows of the Circle, and the centre of the Stalls with great views between seats 6-12 in rows D-G.

Due to the intimacy of the venue, bargain hunters can get great value from the back row of the Circle which offers a great view of the stage. The overhang from the Circle does encroach on the rear seats in the Stalls, meaning the back rows do have a slightly restricted view which should reflect in the price of the ticket.

Patrons on a budget can find good value for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button tickets in the last four rows of the Circle from H to L which are often discounted but still offer a great view of the stage and have good legroom.
