Von Teese for Playhouse

Posted: 27 Jun 2019 05:24 PM PDT

2020 is Glamonatrix time

Tickets go on sale today, Friday 28 June, for the Playhouse date in April 2020 of the ever-dazzling international Queen of Burlesque’s latest extravaganza – Dita Von Teese: Glamonatrix.

Billed at “the most lavish touring burlesque show in history”, Von Teese’s all-new revue will be tingling the fashion buds in Australia and New Zealand this Autumn, with dates in Europe in the Spring of 2020, arriving at the Edinburgh Playhouse on Tuesday April 28 2020.

Dita Von Teese Glamonatrix

The Glamonatrix revue promises an uber-glamorous variety burlesque with extravagant new production numbers from Dita and her cast.

It follows the success of The Art of Teese tour, and will play eight dates in the UK, from the Brighton Dome via the Alexandra Birmingham and London Palladium to the Edinburgh Playhouse and Manchester O2 Apollo before heading to the Dublin Olympia.

“With the success of my last tour of Europe, I came home more inspired than ever and got straight into building new acts,” say Von Teese.

“I am coming back with an even bigger show than I've ever toured with before. Being in these historic theatres with audiences coming dressed to the nines, creates this incredible atmosphere unlike anything I've ever seen before.”

Embracing sensuality

Von Teese and her cohorts will be wearing and discarding costumes created by famed corset maker Mister Pearl, British designer Jenny Packham, French couturier Alexis Mabille, burlesque icon Catherine D'Lish, Brooke Brothers and more.

Shoe aficionados will no doubt delight in the extraordinary bespoke footwear by Christian Louboutin.

“For me, burlesque has always been about finding my own power and confidence,” adds Von Teese.

“Embracing sensuality and encouraging others to do the same in their own lives. Glamour is the art of creating mystery and allure, and the new Glamonatrix show embraces all of these qualities.”

Tickets for all venues go on sale from 10am on Friday 28 June 2019.

Phantom at the Festival

Posted: 27 Jun 2019 03:36 PM PDT

UK Tour plays Festival Theatre in 2020

The Phantom of the Opera has announced a major UK and Ireland tour for 2020 which will play Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre for six weeks in September and October.

The tour will arrive at the Festival Theatre on Wednesday 23 September, almost eight years to the day since Andrew Lloyd Weber’s phenomenally successful show was last in town. It will play through to October 31. Tickets go on public sale on Monday 30 September 2019.

The tour sets out from the Curve, Leicester in February, visiting the Palace Manchester for April and May, Bord Gais in Dublin in June and July, the Birmingham Hippodrome in August and the Festival Theatre from Wednesday 23 September to Saturday 31 October 2020.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as 'The Phantom' who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano, Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her.

He is unaware of Christine's love for Raoul, however. And the Phantom's obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic, haunting and soaring score includes Music of the Night, All I Ask of You, Masquerade and the iconic title song.

Ticket on sale dates

Early tickets for the Edinburgh dates go on sale to Friends on Monday 26 August 2019. Details of how to join the theatre’s friends scheme are here: Join the Friends. Tickets for groups will be on sale from Monday 9 September and on General Sale from Monday 30 September 2019.

Phantom has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Charles Hart, and additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe. The book is by Richard Stilgoe and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It is based on the novel Le Fantôme de l'Opera by Gaston Leroux, with Orchestrations by David Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group Ltd.

Casting and further venues are to be announced at a later date.
