Joss Stone musical The Time Traveller’s Wife opens in West End

The Time Traveller’s Wife: The Musical has arrived in London’s West End!

An adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s best-selling novel of the same name, this captivating love story intertwines romance with the complexities of time travel, is transforming into a mesmerizing stage experience.

The show is running at the Apollo Theatre with tickets on sale now here.

Joss Stone and Dave Stewart composed the musical’s score with additional music by Nick Finlow and additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan. It’s adapted for the stage by Lauren Gunderson.

The Time Traveller’s Wife tells the poignant tale of Clare and Henry, whose love endures the challenges of Henry’s unique genetic disorder that causes him to unpredictably time travel. Their story, which unfolds across different times and ages, explores the depths of love, loss, and the inexorable flow of time. The novel, already adapted into a successful film in 2009, is now ready to enchant audiences anew with its musical rendition.

For Stone, who originally rose to fame in 2003 with her debut album The Soul Sessions, working on a musical was a “different environment”.

She shared of writing the piece: “You imagine it to be very stiff – ‘This is the way we do it’ – because of all the other moving parts. But it wasn’t – it was so much fun.”

Leading the cast are David Hunter as Henry and Joanna Woodward as Clare. They’re joined by Tim Mahendran, Hiba Elchikhe, Ross Dawes, Sorelle Marsh, Alwyne Taylor, Irfan Damani, Alexandra Doar, Alex Lodge and Helena Pipe.

The production is directed by Bill Buckhurst and designed by Anna Fleischle, with choreography by Shelley Maxwell.
