The world premiere of The Ladykillers in the UK has enjoyed enormous success thus far; it became the fastest selling show in box office history at The Liverpool Playhouse and then went on to break all existing box office records at The Gielgud Theatre, London. The Ladykillers then fully recouped capital investment within 6 weeks of opening performances and has also been a hit with reviewers from both the UK and International press.
The Ladykillers received 5 Olivier Award nominations in April 2012; Best New Play, Best Direction, Best Actress (Marcia Warren), Best Set Design and Best Sound Design.
Based on such success, a first class UK tour was mounted in 2012 followed by another successful run in London’s West End at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2013.
