Top Hat

Based on the 1935 Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers screwball comedy of the same name, Top Hat is a 2011 musical based on the songs of Irving Berlin. The fun story centres around American star Jerry Travers and his tempestuous relationship with Dale Tremont told with comic characters, mistaken identities and classic tunes!

The Irving Berlin songs featured in the show include "Top Hat, White Tie and Tails", "Cheek to Cheek" and "Let's Face the Music and Dance". The West End production won the Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 2013.
