Relive the playlist of your life at NOW That’s What I Call A Musical at Liverpool Empire
Now That's What I Call A Musical

Who remembers getting a NOW CD? Kids that was like a round thing that you put inside of a machine and it would play music… providing it wasn’t scratched!

Well now you can relive the playlist of your life with Now That’s What I Call A Musical coming to the Liverpool Empire next year.

NOW That’s What I Call Music was a staple gift for Christmas and birthdays at one time… and not to make anyone feel old, but they’re currently on NOW 117… wow!

The show is celebrating 40 years of the iconic NOW That’s What I Call Music brand, which has sold an estimated 200 million copies worldwide, this fun-filled production is bursting with hits from Whitney Houston, Wham!, Blondie, Tears For Fears, Spandau Ballet, and many more.

Written by award-winning comedian Pippa Evans and directed and choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing legend Craig Revel Horwood, the heart-warming and funny story takes audiences on an uplifting journey down memory lane.

Craig Revel Horwood said:

“It’s a bit like Stephen Sondheim’s Follies set at a reunion with flashbacks to the characters’ teenage years, exploring the music they listened to in the 80s and how it shaped their lives. There’s even a twist that takes us forward in time, making it a bit like Back to the Future.

“The flashbacks are set during the peak of the NOW albums’ fame, and the story revolves around two girls exploring their lives through music. These albums and songs were a significant part of the characters’ teenage years.”

The show will feature cameos from Sinitta, Sonia, and more.

Craig Revel Horwood said:

“In a moment of fantasy, the musical brings the singers the girls idolized to life, offering wisdom and advice. It’s similar to Beauty School Dropout from Grease, but the advice is much kinder!

“I hope the story prompts reflection [for people] on their lives, their hopes, and how those passions shaped who they are today. The show offers comedy, heartfelt moments, great music, and universal themes that will resonate with everyone.”

Now That’s What I Call A Musical will be showing at Liverpool Empire from Tue 4 Mar – Sat 8 Mar 2025.

Tickets are available from £13.00.
