Close Up – The Twiggy Musical tickets are on sale now for the show in London in 2023.

Based on the life of model Dame Lesley Lawson – aka Twiggy, Close Up – The Twiggy Musical will begin performances at Menier Chocolate Factory on 18 September 2023 with tickets on sale now here.

The story of a skinny kid from Neasden who became the most famous teenager on the planet and the ‘face of the 1960s’ may seem like the stuff of fairy tales, but there is tragedy as well as triumph in this intimate portrayal of a true 20th century icon.

It’s the story of a young working class woman who faced snobbery and sexism in a pre-Me Too world and yet achieved her dreams without ever compromising who she was.

Elena Skye will lead the cast in the title role of Twiggy in the show, which is written and directed by Ben Elton.

Elton said: “I’m thrilled to be bringing Twiggy’s incredible story to the stage, with an amazing creative team at the Menier – the perfect home to begin our journey. Very London, very authentic, and such wonderful intimacy in which to stage this musical. In Elena, we’ve found a glorious talent – not just a unique voice, but someone who’s funny, honest and utterly authentic, very much like Twiggy herself.”

Close Up – The Twiggy Musical will play at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory from 18 September 2023 currently booking through to 18 November 2023.
