Patrick Barlow’s The Messiah is the laugh riot ordained to entertain you this Christmas! With an exceptional cast that includes Hugh Dennis, Lesley Garrett, and John Marquez, this is the show you’ve been waiting for - literally and metaphorically.
Why Watch The Messiah
Patrick Barlow is well-known for having directed the Olivier-winning West End smash hit, 39 Steps, and is at the helm of the staggeringly funny The Messiah as well. With well-known comic actors for the stage and screen, including Hugh Dennis, Lesley Garrett and John Marquez, The Messiah promises to be the funniest nativity show at the West End this season.
A tired travelling theatre troupe made up of two actors and an opera singer arrive at the ancient city of London by camel, prepared to tell the greatest story ever. Featuring Mary and Joseph, God and the archangel Gabriel, and Herod and the ox, these three delightful performers try to enact the greatest Christmas story - with hilarious results.

“Very old jokes also mix with a microcosmic study of theatre practice. We get the unstoppable singer, the over-insistent recorded brass and even subtle wordplay, reminiscent of Benny Hill, on Uranus. But the reminder that in the interval we can buy wise men flip-flops, or Herod tea towels, echoes theatre's current dependence on marketing.”
