Grim: a New Musical to play the Rose Theatre and Charing Cross Theatre


Grim: a New Musical which is supported by Judi Dench, Ian McKellen and David Cameron, will transfer from the 900-seater Rose theatre to Charing Cross in Londons West End this August. Grim: a New Musical will also perform for His Royal Highness Prince Edward on the 11th July at The Rose theatre Kingston. 

Grim: a New Musical is the love story to die for. It’s a story about the Grim Reaper falling in love with Cupid but she cannot be with him as she’ll kill him. When she is drawn to someone she takes their soul. Grim cannot be complete without her soul and Cupid cannot be complete without his soul mate. This musical is about the collision of the two most powerful forces in the world - the power of love vs. the power of death with the angel of love falling for the angel of death. Sound-wise, think of Wicked, the Addam's Family and everything Tim Burton-esque and that’s the general tone of Grim.
