Overview

Federico Fellini’s 1975 Oscar-winning film La Strada received a magical stage adaptation at the rebranded The Other Palace. La Strada is a the circus story, a visually stunning modern masterpiece of cinema.

Based on the subject and script work by Fellini, Ennio Flaiano and Tullio Pinelli, La Strada is the incredible story of Gelsomina, who is sold to a travelling sideshow strongman by her penniless mother. Together, Gelsomina and Zampano travel through the Italian countryside, performing at various shows to earn their keep.

When a dangerous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus, the duo come across Il Matto, a mysterious tightrope walker. Soon, Il Matto reignites Gelsomina’s spirit with a fire and confidence that was long since lost. Featuring a multi-talented cast, mesmerising original music and enough emotion to stir the soul, La Strada is the ultimate story of friendship and acceptance.

Produced by Kenny Wax Ltd, La Strada is directed by Olivier Award-nominee Sally Cookson, who brought enchanting productions such as Hetty Feather and Jane Eyre to the stage. Opening at The Other Palace for a summer season, La Strada features original music by Benji Bower, design by Katie Sykes, lighting design by Aideen Malone and sound design by Mike Beer.

Acquired by Andrew Lloyd Webber, The Other Palace is rebranded from the St James Theatre to present new and rarely seen musical theatre. La Strada played at the venue from May 30th 2017 until July 8th 2017.

A beautiful show. The spectacle of it is very special. I particularly liked the interplay between two of the three lead characters - the girl and the unicyclist. The music and singing were really original too. This musical deserves to do well.

La Strada was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. A hugely multi-talented cast of actor/musicians with some circus skills too. A simple but beautifully told story. I saw it twice!
