The X Factor Musical – I Can’t Sing! is the hilarious new musical which goes behind the microphones and under the judges’ desks at the biggest show on earth and reveals the (not necessarily accurate) tale of heartache and laughter which keeps millions of us glued to The X Factor, week-after-week.
Written by BAFTA Award-winning comedian Harry Hill (3 BAFTAs, 7 British Comedy Awards and a Golden Rose of Montreux) with music and lyrics by Steve Brown (Spend, Spend, Spend, Spitting Image, Laura Mvula, TV Burp), I Can’t Sing! is co-produced by the patron saint of fame himself, Mr Simon Cowell.
Irreverent, anarchic and yet strangely touching, this spectacular musical comedy features a host of new and deliriously funny songs that will delight both fans and sceptics of The X Factor in equal measure.
Directed by Sean Foley (co-founder of The Right Size; The Play What I Wrote; The Ladykillers; What The Butler Saw) with choreography by Kate Prince (Founder of Zoonation; Into The Hoods and Some Like It Hip Hop) and set design by Es Devlin (Creative Director for Take That, Kanye West and Pet Shop Boys stadium tours; designer for London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony), the worlds of theatrical and television entertainment have come together to create an incredible musical spectacular in the West End’s most renowned theatre, the London Palladium.

The celebrated Ealing comedy, The Ladykillers, comes to life on stage this Autumn in a hilarious and thrilling new adaption by Graham Linehan (Father Ted) and directed by Sean Foley (The Play What I Wrote).
Featuring a stellar cast of some of the finest stage and screen comedy actors including BAFTA winner Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It) as Professor Marcus alongside James Fleet (The Vicar of Dibley), Ben Miller (The Armstrong and Miller Show), Stephen Wight (Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer) and Olivier Award winner Clive Rowe, with Marcia Warren as the sweetly innocent Mrs Wilberforce.
The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing…
Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs W. is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?
