New Clueless musical adaptation to make UK premiere

A new musical adaptation of Clueless is to make its UK premiere.

Adapted from the 1995 movie of the same name, Clueless will have a development run at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre from 12 – 24 February. Tickets are on sale now here.

Clueless is adapted for the stage by Amy Heckerling who wrote and directed the film, based on Jane Austen’s 1815 novel Emma with an updated setting in modern-day Beverly Hills.

The show was previously seen Off-Broadway in New York in 2018 starring Dove Cameron. Then a jukebox musical, it featured songs from the 80s and 90s including U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer, Barbie Girl by Aqua and Torn by Natalie Imbruglia.

This new version features an original score with music by the multi-platinum singer-songwriter KT Tunstall (writer and performer of such celebrated hits as Suddenly I See and Black Horse and The Cherry Tree), and lyrics by Grammy winner and three-time Tony nominee Glenn Slater (Sister Act The Musical, Tangled).
