Musicals is the new magazine celebrating the World of Musical Theatre, from the West End to Broadway and beyond.

Every issue brings you exclusive interviews with the stars of the shows and their creative teams, from producers and designers to composers and lyricists; in-depth coverage of the best live productions, from the West End and Broadway to international and regional productions; as well as reviews of the latest recordings and releases.

Latest Issue:

  • To celebrate 40 years of the iconic musical-on-wheels Starlight Express, Editor Sarah Kirkup speaks with members of the original cast and creatives to uncover the key to the show’s cult following, and also looks ahead to what the new, Luke Sheppard-directed London revival has in store.
