Rip It Up does exactly that to the conventional West End tried and tested jukebox musical. In part a reality TV show and in part a showcase, the evening encapsulates a musical time-machine that will have you tapping your feet and smiling from cheek to cheek despite your best attempts to resist.
Bringing the 1960s to life, find out what critics made of Rip it Up, now playing at the Garrick Theatre.
Harry Judd, Aston Merrygold and Louis Smith will be joined by Jay McGuiness in the ultimate Strictly boyband when the show Rip it Up – The 60s begins a 16-week engagement at London’s Garrick Theatre from 7 February 2019.
“This is not a musical. This is not a concert. This is not a panto, or a play, or anything I can compare it to,” so proclaims Tom Fletcher in the show notes. And he is quite right. While The Christmasaurus Live On Stage has components of all of these, it is – much like the titular only dinosaur in the world – truly unique.
