The X Factor Musical – I Can’t Sing! is the hilarious new musical which goes behind the microphones and under the judges’ desks at the biggest show on earth and reveals the (not necessarily accurate) tale of heartache and laughter which keeps millions of us glued to The X Factor, week-after-week.
Written by BAFTA Award-winning comedian Harry Hill (3 BAFTAs, 7 British Comedy Awards and a Golden Rose of Montreux) with music and lyrics by Steve Brown (Spend, Spend, Spend, Spitting Image, Laura Mvula, TV Burp), I Can’t Sing! is co-produced by the patron saint of fame himself, Mr Simon Cowell.
Irreverent, anarchic and yet strangely touching, this spectacular musical comedy features a host of new and deliriously funny songs that will delight both fans and sceptics of The X Factor in equal measure.
Directed by Sean Foley (co-founder of The Right Size; The Play What I Wrote; The Ladykillers; What The Butler Saw) with choreography by Kate Prince (Founder of Zoonation; Into The Hoods and Some Like It Hip Hop) and set design by Es Devlin (Creative Director for Take That, Kanye West and Pet Shop Boys stadium tours; designer for London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony), the worlds of theatrical and television entertainment have come together to create an incredible musical spectacular in the West End’s most renowned theatre, the London Palladium.
