More about Broken Wings

Khalil Gibran’s Broken Wings returns to London for a limited run at Charing Cross Theatre this Winter. Based on the iconic poet’s epic masterpiece, the musical adaptation tells the true story of Gibran’s first love through a mix of poetry and music. Get ready to be transported back in time and across continents, to Beirut. Be sure to book your tickets for Broken Wings whilst the best availability lasts!

The musical begins in New York City in 1923 where an ageing Gibran narrates from his cold studio. Using poetry and music, the audience are transported two decades into the past and across continents to Beirut at the turn of the century. An eighteen-year-old Gibran returns to the Middle East after five years in America. He returns to complete his education and discover more about his heritage and doesn’t plan on falling in love but when he meets Selma Karamy, he falls deeply. However, Selma is soon after betrothed to Mansour Bey Galib, nephew of Bishop Bulos Galib, who has an eye firm upon the Karamy family fortune. Gibran and Selma fight for their love, which in turn means having to navigate through the rules, traditions and expectations of their society.

Broken Wings has a book by Kahlil Gibran, with music and lyrics by Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan. The production is directed by Bronagh Lagan, has orchestrations by Joe Davison and is produced by Ali Matar.

View Seating Plan

Ideally situated under Charing Cross Station, the New Players Theatre is brimming with history and is proud to be one of London’s last remaining music hall venues. Over 100 years of entertainment lives within these walls creating a beautifully theatrical atmosphere bursting with memories of London’s finest entertainers - and, back in the days, if you were willing to buy a pint and a cigar then your entrance was free! Sadly with the smoking ban now in force we have to charge a little more than that, but we remain a competitively priced, central London venue, giving audiences the chance to see, with ease, a range of entertainment.

We have been striving to continue the spirit of the venue by entertaining audiences with many kinds of events from late night cabarets, plays, comedy and musicals to showcases, fashion shows and music gigs.

The venue is beautiful and still has the original Victorian bar at the back of the auditorium with the original Victorian glass panelling, as you can imagine the atmosphere in this space is one of a kind. The theatre is perfectly complimented with a highly successful bar and restaurant which opens until 2.30am. We are a venue which hardly sleeps at all.

 

History Of The Theatre

Founded in 1936 this theatre occupied several premises in the West End before locating to its present site under The Arches below Charing Cross Station. The current site was a famous Victorian music hall which went on to produce many musicals, pantomimes and melodramas.

With 275 seats The New Players Theatre is one of the smallest West End theatres. It was rebuilt in 1989 as part of the Charing Cross re-development to meet the demands of national and international producers wanting a theatre which offers a degree of intimacy and is the equivalent of an Off-Broadway space.

The Theatre and Players Bar and Restaurant have recently been refurbished and are now owned and operated by The Pure Group.
