What's it all about?

Following its hugely successful premiere at Bristol Old, the critically acclaimed new musical The Grinning Man has transferred to the West End and “demands to be seen” (The Times). 

From Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse), Kneehigh writer Carl Grose and featuring “an outstanding score” (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler, The Grinning Man is a magical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables).

Set in a fantastical world created by designer Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell), and brought to life with the “astonishing puppetry” (What’s on Stage) of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers, The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness at the Trafalgar Studios.

What's the story?

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret. 

Who's in it?

Sean Kingsley and Ewan Black, who previously co-starred in the award-winning Bristol Old Vic production of the musical, have been confirmed to play Ursus and Trelaw in the West End premiere. Sanne den Besten, new to the cast, will play Dea.

Louis Maskell, who was recently nominated for Best Performance in a Musical for his role in the Bristol production, will lead the cast in the title role of Grinpayne, the show’s disfigured hero. Julian Bleach plays the role of the deliciously corrupt court clown Barkilphedro.

Joining the cast are Mark Anderson (Book of Mormon), Julie Atherton (Avenue Q), Jim Kitson (Much Ado About Nothing), Sophia Mackay (The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds her Chameleon Skin) and Amanda Wilkin (Hamlet). Completing the company are James Alexander-Taylor, Christina Bloom, Jonathan Cobb, Leo Elso, Claire-Marie Hall, and Loren O'Dair.
