It follows on from successful tours in both 2016 and 2017.

The UK shows will begin in Glasgow on October 17 before visiting other key cities including London, Manchester, Leicester, Brighton, Portsmouth, York, Newcastle, Bath and Dublin.

Ahead of the UK leg, the cast will rehearse at the iconic Pineapple Studios in London’s Covent Garden.
