It was only a matter of time. Jethro Compton and Darren Clark's musical adaptation of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will transfer to the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre later this year.

Coming on the heels of the production's sold-out Southwark Playhouse run, which won Best Musical Theatre Production at the Off West End Awards, Button will begin performances October 10.

Directed by Compton, the musical utilizes an actor-musician ensemble to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic short story to life, transporting it from Baltimore, Maryland to the north coast of Cornwall.

Information on casting will be released at a later date, as well as further creative team members.

Said Compton, “This show has gone on the most incredible journey over the last seven years. What’s even more incredible, is the journey is only really just beginning. Button started life as a scrappy little show with a big heart, but the love it’s been shown by our audiences has allowed it to grow into something ready for the West End. We’re so unbelievably grateful for everyone’s support—and we can’t wait to continue this journey with you all.”
