Top Hat Tickets
Top Hat the Musical – Puttin’ on the Ritz
Flair, ballroom dancing and the sparkling of diamonds – Top Hat is a glamourous echo from a time when putting on the Ritz meant donning a tailcoat and gown. Seventy-seven years after it first hit the screen, RKO Pictures’ musical Top Hat finally finds its way to London's West End. See the now iconic routines of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire meticulously translated to the live stage. Refreshingly giddy and witty, Top Hat the musical is the perfect ticket for a good evening out.
More About Top Hat the Musical – From Screen to Stage
After a sell-out tour ending in March 2012, Top Hat transferred to the Aldwych Theatre. Based on the Rogers/Astaire success movie from 1935, the Top Hat score is written by musical legend Irving Berlin, showcasing some of his finest tunes. The film Top Hat featured five signature songs, including hits like ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ and ‘Cheek to Cheek’. The West End musical offers musical enjoyment from the entire Irving Berlin back catalogue.
The storyline brings the American dancer Jerry Travers to London, where he encounters the beautiful Dale Tremont. Abruptly woken by Jerry practicing his tap dance routine, Dale storms into his hotel room and the debonair bachelor is instantly smitten by her. Hopelessly in love, Jerry is determined to pursue Dale, and during a series of confusions the love story unfolds.
