Following a fall 2022 premiere at Chester's Storyhouse, The Time Traveller's Wife: The Musical will transfer to the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End. Performances will begin October 7 with an opening set for November 1.
David Hunter and Joanna Woodward will reprise their roles as Henry and Clare in the new musical based on the best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger and the New Line Cinema film screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin. The musical adaptation features a score by by Grammy winners Joss Stone and The Eurythmics' Dave Stewart and a book by Lauren Gunderson. Additional music is by Nick Finlow and additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan.
