Why Am I So Single

The creators of the smash-hit musicaSix are set to open their new musical Why Am I So Single in the West End later this year.

Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss are best known for their groundbreaking musical Six, which tells the untold story of the six wives of Henry VIII through pop music. Their new musical Why Am I So Single follows the story of two writers/ friends who are trying to write a new musical while reflecting on their romantic dilemmas. In a world of social media, they share their personal woes surrounding their dating lives and the nature of being single.

Moss and Marlow have stated, “This is ultimately a musical about two friends, their desire for love, and how they deal with loneliness. We hope people come away feeling super uplifted. And we hope they text someone the second they leave the theatre saying ‘omigosh just fyi i love you soooo much!!!!’”

Initial casting for the show has already been announced and includes Jo Foster (& Juliet), Leesa Tulley (Six), and Noah Thomas (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie). Further casting is yet to be announced.

The creative team behind Why Am I So Single also includes choreographer Ellen Kane, orchestrator and vocal arranger Joe Beighton, musical supervisor Joe Beighton, set designer Moi Tran, costume designer Max Johns, lighting designer Jai Morjaria, and sound designer Paul Gatehouse.

The show will open at the Garrick Theatre on 27 August 2024 and is currently booking until 13 February 2024. Keep an eye out for further announcements!
