X-Factor is coming to the West End with the all new hit musical I Cant Sing written by comedian Harry Hill
2014's most anticipated musical is set to hit the West End in London's Palladium. Written by multi-BAFTA award winning comedian Harry Hill, "I Can't Sing!" promises to go behind the scenes and dive in to the true story behind the X Factor - a tale of ambition, heartache, laughter and tears as well as a talking dog?
EastEnders' very own Nigel Harman better known as his hard-type character "Dennis Rickman" stars as TV's Mr Nasty' Simon Cowell. He is also known for various theatre appearances including Guys and Dolls and Lord Farquaad in Shrek The Musical where he received an Olivier Award for his performance.
Directed by Sean Murphy the cameras go behind the microphones and under the judge's desks to bring a new hit musical based on a show that keeps millions glued to the TV week on week. Featuring an array of characters that may seem weirdly familiar, and a host of new songs that promises to delight.
The musical portrays the story of one girl's journey to the final round of the X-Factor talent show where she hopes to be triumphant. However, this is a musical written by Harry Hill, and with his trademark silliness is not just a Broadway version of the X Factor.
The show is stuffed with a veritable sideshow's worth of barmy oddities, including a singing hunchback, a man on an iron lung and a talking dog. It will be the first of its kind to ever be hosted in London's Theatreland and is definitely a must see.
The London Palladium is located just off Oxford Street, just 15mins walk from The Cavendish London. From many of the famous stars that have played there such as Whoopi Goldberg to many of the televised events that have been featured there, it is arguably the most famous theatre in London and the United Kingdom, especially for musical variety shows.
