NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE AGED UNDER 12.
It's a pub sing-a-long like no other. 9 guys deliver the favourite songs of Paul Simon, Sia, Adele and many more in foot-stomping style with tap and thoughts on community.
A working pub on stage, it's a party lock-in like no other.
The West End company features Conor Hanley – who has previously performed in The Choir of Man on the 2022 US tour, the Edinburgh Fringe, and Coventry City of Culture, marking his West End debut. Daniel Harnett - part of the original West End cast, and the company of the US tour.

Completing the company are Sam Ebenezer (The Mousetrap – St Martin’s Theatre, Cinderella – Sunderland Empire), Gavin Ryan (West Side Story – Bord Gais Dublin, making his West End debut in The Choir of Man) and Lucas Koch (Million Dollar Quartet – Barn Theatre, also making his West End debut in The Choir of Man).
Not available. Professional reviewers are agreed that this is one of those "office party" shows, with appeal to those out as a group looking for a bit of fun.
It's a mixture of back story - each man in the pub has one - and good old-fashioned audience singing along interaction. One of those rare times in a theatre where it is not only permitted but encouraged, it seems.
What it lacks in structure and story is outweighed by the strength of the music. Though one reviewer found a urinal sequence tasteless (the monkey would probably agree) for the most part it is harmless 3 star fun in the majority opinion.
