UK News: Sales for The Big Life going fast at Theatre Royal Stratford East

Advance sales are going very fast for 'The Big Life', which returns to Theatre Royal Stratford East on February 4.

With a week to go before the show opens, ' The Big Life' has registered the highest advance sales for any show outside of panto at the Theatre Royal. Because ' The Big Life ' is on for a limited run, now is your chance to get in quick before it sells out!

"It's an important story from recent British history told in a wonderful, joyous way," says Kerry Michael , the new artistic director of Theatre Royal. "Demand the first time was overwhelming, with many people not able to get tickets. That is why we're bringing it back."

' The Big Life ' is an acclaimed and heart-warming musical that received universally rave reviews and played to sold-out audiences when it was staged at the Theatre Royal in May. ' The Big Life ' is a feel-good ska musical that captures the mood of the period in the music and charts the stories of Caribbean migrants in their hunt for a better life.
