About the show

Frances Barber and the Pet Shop Boys bring the iconic Billie Trix back to life in a provocative one-woman show. Transferring to London after rave reviews in Edinburgh, Musik runs at the Leicester Square Theatre.

First introduced in Pet Shop Boys musical Closer to Heaven, Billie Trix is a rock icon and one-woman wonder. Breaking out of her minor role in the original musical, Trix’s solo show is an outrageous account of her life and career, from post-war Berlin and the Vietnam war to rock concerts and Andy Warhol.

Featuring six original songs by the Pet Shop Boys, Musik premiered at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019. Olivier Award winner Frances Barber returns for the London run, having previously appeared in Camille and Julius Caesar on stage and Doctor Who and Dead Fish on screen.

The show features a script by Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing) in collaboration with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, direction by Josh Seymour (Associate Director: Follies), set and costumes by Lee Newby, lighting by David Plater and sound design by Fergus O’Hare.

Rock ’n’ roll, drugs, and extraordinary confessional writing: Musik at Leicester Square Theatre is an exciting and potent new show. It opens in London on 5 February 2020.
