OPERATION MINCEMEAT: A NEW MUSICAL – EIGHTH EXTENSION ANNOUNCED!

“311 days ago we began previewing our little show in the West End. We were stunned when we announced our first extension. Today, it’s truly beyond our wildest dreams, to be announcing the EIGHTH EXTENSION. We remain delighted, and quite frankly staggered.”

said David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoë Roberts, Operation Mincemeat: A New Musical’s writers and composers

Peter Marks, The Washington Post

Based on the extraordinary true story during World War II, Operation Mincemeat is largely attributed to Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley. However, until recently, little was known about one of the less-regarded female protagonists – MI5 secretary Hester Leggatt. Following dedicated fans of Operation Mincemeat: A New Musical successfully uncovering the missing pieces of her life, 1000 people attended a plaque unveiling in her honour at the Fortune Theatre in December 2023, six months after the show’s West End premiere.

To celebrate this special moment for the production, Sony Music is set to release a limited-edition 7″ ‘Dear Bill’ vinyl featuring Jak Malone, who portrays Hester Leggatt on-stage, to coincide with International Women’s Day  – 8th  March. The vinyl can be pre-ordered here.

Now starting to gain international acclaim including titles from the USA -“My far-and-away favorite production” (The New Yorker), Israel – “A story about the impossible that was possible…The guys who put on a show with zero budget conquered the most coveted goal of all. The mouse that roared… Fly to London now, right now” (Shlomut by Globes) and Germany –“stands out from the plethora of West End productions…The current must-see show” (Musicalzentrale), the extraordinary debut musical is written and composed by SpitLip – David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoë Roberts.

After five sold-out development runs at the New Diorama Theatre in 2019 and Southwark Playhouse in 2020, 2021 & 2022, plus an extended Riverside Studios run last summer, Operation Mincemeat: A New Musical is back.

The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse.

Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, Operation Mincemeat is the fast-paced, hilarious and unbelievable true story of the twisted secret mission that won us World War II. The question is, how did a well-dressed corpse wrong-foot Hitler?

The production is directed by 2023 Olivier Award nominated  Robert Hastie (Standing at the Sky’s Edge, National Theatre – 2023 Best New Musical Olivier Award winner), following providing directorial support for the Riverside Studios run, while Olivier Award nominated Jenny Arnold (Jerry Springer: The Opera, National Theatre) continues as Choreographer. Also from Standing at the Sky’s Edge at the National Theatre on the creative team are: 2023 Olivier Award nominated  Ben Stones (Sylvia, The Old Vic) as Set and Costume Designer, Tony Award, six-time Olivier Award and Bafta Award winning Mark Henderson (Girl From the North Country, Broadway & Noël Coward Theatre) as Lighting Designer and Olivier Award winning Mike Walker (Jerry Springer: The Opera, National Theatre) as Sound Designer. Grammy Award winning and Tony, Emmy, Olivier award nominated Steve Sidwell (Beautiful: The Musical, Broadway & Aldwych Theatre) is Orchestrator and Vocal Arranger, while 2023 Stage Debut Award ‘Best creative West End debut’ nominated Joe Bunker is Musical Director. Georgie Staight joins as Associate Director and Paul Isaiah Isles as Associate Choreographer. Casting is by Pearson Casting.

Operation Mincemeat won The Stage Debut award for Best Composer/Lyricist, the Off-West End award for Best Musical Production and Best Company Ensemble, and most recently the West End Wilma award for Best West End Show, Rising Star and Best Understudy. Operation Mincemeat is nominated for four 2024 WhatsOnStage Awards.

The 2023 Off-West End Best Musical Production Award winning returning cast (Southwark Playhouse/ Riverside Studios), David Cumming, Claire-Marie Hall, Natasha Hodgson, Jak Malone and Zoë Roberts, are joined by: Seán Carey (returning from Riverside Studios), Geri Allan, Christian Andrews and Holly Sumpton.

Operation Mincemeat is presented in the West End by Avalon (in association with SpitLip), who have supported since the Southwark Playhouse runs. The show was commissioned by New Diorama Theatre, co-commissioned by The Lowry, and also supported by the Rhinebeck Writers Retreat.

 

What The Press Said:

67 ★★★★★ reviews

“My far-and-away favorite production—and a complete surprise to me—was the musical “Operation Mincemeat… a comedy that has been cheerfully dismantling jingoism builds a stirring vision of real fellowship in its place.”
Helen Shaw, The New Yorker

“mission improbable is a runaway hit…SpitLip honour as well as spoof with their all-conquering espionage musical…It’s a hoot – and a marvel. It is also one of the surprise survivors of the pandemic-stricken theatre. A show that looked like a caper with a cult following is on the brink of commercial success… Its rise, in an era of juggernaut musicals, is flabbergasting…nimbly varied, expressive music, ranging from sea shanty, to jazz to hip-hop; lyrics so patteringly exact and ingeniously rhymed that Noël Coward might have flushed with envy.”
Susannah Clapp, The Observer

“a Pythonesque wartime romp that doesn’t short-change the intellect… a delight…this inventive gem of a night is in with a very good fighting chance of resounding victory”
Dominic Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph

“Pure theatrical serotonin, it’s a show that will leave you with a spring in your step”
Hugh Montgomery, Metro

“a daring, ridiculous and unapologetic piece of theatre that leaves us completely credulous in trying to understand just how earth they created something so sensational and pulled it off… an incredible emotional range… The songs are unforgettable and all of them add to the insanity of this musical… The comedy is insanely clever and absurd; this musical is a fun space that challenges but doesn’t look to offend in the name of being funny… such an amazing experience to watch it… an incredibly well-written musical… Unfortunately five stars is the limit, I would happily give many more.”
Cindy Marcolina, Broadway World

“a real triumph… has potential to become a cult classic. Go see it now with the original cast, so you can brag about it for years.”
Sarah Rappaport, Bloomberg 

“The West End show you need tickets for, now. Operation Mincemeat is this summer’s smash hit”
Sam Marlowe, The i

“a daring, ridiculous and unapologetic piece of theatre that leaves us completely credulous in trying to understand just how on earth they created something so sensational and pulled it off… an incredible emotional range… The songs are unforgettable and all of them add to the insanity of this musical… The comedy is insanely clever and absurd; this musical is a fun space that challenges but doesn’t look to offend in the name of being funny… such an amazing experience to watch it… an incredibly well-written musical… Unfortunately five stars is the limit, I would happily give many more.”
Katerina Partolina Schwartz, Broadway Baby

“the show becomes cult. In a surprising and almost unprecedented move, the small show takes to the stage of the big ones…a fairy tale of the most beloved, and rare, kind of show business. A story about the impossible that was possible and more. A story of victory against all odds ….brilliant, exciting and unforgettable theatre….. The guys who put on a show with zero budget conquered the most coveted goal of all. The mouse that roared. That in itself is an astounding, rare and enviable and inspiring achievement in equal measure…It is difficult to explain this special phenomenon, which is undoubtedly the most heartwarming theatrical event of recent years. There are incessant laughs, endless punchlines…something extraordinary is happening here… Fly to London now, right now, and you’ll understand what it’s all about. Only when you experience Operation Meatball will you realize that everything they said about the show was true, and pass the word on. That’s how hits are born, that’s how legends are born, and that’s how history is made.”
Yaron Fried, Shlomut by Globes (Israel)

“There are some big, blowsy shows around in the West End, but this little belter is staging its own audacious invasion plan.”
 Suzi Feay, The Financial Times

“a miraculous musical that tells the entire story in a kind of accelerated farce that is part Mel Brooks, part SIX, part Hamilton with a side order of One Man, Two Guvnors.”
Neil Norman, The Daily Mirror

“a little show with a very big future.”
David Benedict, Variety

“But whoof! It blew the roof clean off. Hoots and tears welcomed this ingenious, touching musical. Taut lyrics, vintage gags, a wild tale and tunes that followed me out into the night air, in hums and whistles. Perfection… An artisanal masterpiece”
Luke Jones, The Daily Mail

“At a time when London’s musical theatre landscape is flooded with film adaptations and Broadway imports, Operation Mincemeat is that rare thing: an original British musical… lyrics as smart and snappy as Hamilton and a book as silly as the greatest slapstick comedies”
Isobel Lewis, The Independent

“Sometimes the jokes hit you so quickly that you barely have time to laugh before the next one comes sweeping along….gloriously inventive musical…brilliantly evoked by a multitasking, gender-switching cast of five…The songs, given a contemporary veneer, sometimes veering into Hamilton rap territory, are crafted with infinite care…Amid the mayhem, it’s touching to see the actors pay homage to the memory of the homeless man, Glyndwr Michael”
Clive Davis, The Times 

“It’s a cause for great celebration when such a joyously homegrown, idiosyncratically British new comedy musical lands in the West End… insanely hard-working quick-change cast… The show is witty, mocking, camp and joyous, not to mention immensely tuneful – the songs are both clever and catchy… Anyone with even the slightest interest in homegrown success stories should wish Operation Mincemeat the very best of British.”
Fiona Mountford, The i

“The best show in town is back – bigger and better than ever…makes its West End debut with a bigger budget and just as much heart and hilarity. Do not miss!…The little show that roared in the face of blockbuster has executed a flawless transition to mainstream triumph with impeccable class, quicksilver shine and its trademark plucky determination to remain true to itself. It’s as fabulously funny, wickedly witty and magnificently moving as before – just with added sequins…Madcap and utterly marvellous…extraordinarily talented cast…blends every musical genre and delivers a dazzling array of pastiche treats and belly laughs, backed by the excellent live band…This show was already a major triumph, now it is sheer perfection.”
Stefan Kyriazis, The Sunday Mirror

“an exuberant, energetic, incurably daft show …wit, charm, a subversive attitude to gender, a surprising amount of pathos, and a Eurobeat number for a Nazi boyband (yes, really)…It’s an embodiment of the eccentric British exceptionalism it both celebrates and mocks…a marvellously bluff, gruff, freewheeling parody of cocksure masculinity….undeniably funny…The script is nimble; the songs riff through period genres from Noel Coward numbers to stirring sea shanties; the rhymes are inspired…This show could be just what the West End needs.” 
Nick Curtis, Evening Standard

“a fringe theatre comet that’s gathered mass and momentum… a delight from start to finish… chemistry really is off the chart…I think it’s safe to say that the operation has been a total success.”
Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out

“high-octane musical comedy hits the big time…hilarious … a glorious parade of witty stagecraft… a triumph of ingenuity… guaranteed to give your ability to grin and giggle a strenuous, much needed workout.”
Helen Hawkins, The Arts Desk

“the perfect blend of everything we want from a musical – a delightfully witty sense of humour, yet with real heart… Inventive, creative, and endlessly enjoyable – we can’t recommend this show enough. If you’ve not seen it, do yourself a favour and pick up a ticket!”
Chris Selman, Gay Times  

“A corpsing comedy that deserves its cult hit status…a deft pastiche…spectacularly successful …brilliantly funny”
Tim Walker, The New European

“the macabre yet tender musical comedy we all need…Corpses, conspiracies and constant laughs, Operation Mincemeat is a brilliant new addition to the West End.”
Olivia Garrett, Radio Times

“the zany toast of the West End”
Patrick Marmion, The Daily Mail

“If you only see one musical this year, make it Operation Mincemeat…the songs are very catchy, the script is hilarious, and the actors’ performances are tip-top. It’s innovative, moving, uplifting and entertaining and I just can’t recommend it enough.”
Ed Gleave, Daily Star Sunday

“the great thing about Operation Mincemeat is that it knows at every point why this is a dialogue scene, why this is a sung scene, why this bit is serious and why this bit isn’t… the thing about Mincemeat is its just smart. Like Hamilton, it knows what it’s doing and why”
David Benedict, BBC Radio 4

“wowing audiences with its hilarious and wildly entertaining musical”
Boyd Hilton, Heat Magazine

“a buzz louder than a doodlebug surrounds Operation Mincemeat…a kind of genius declares itself”
Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

“With dry British humour and solid slapstick, the ensemble races through the story at high speed and leaves surprising pauses for emotional goose bumps…”Operation Mincemeat” stands out from the plethora of West End productions… You leave the theatre with tears in your eyes. With tears of laughter and tears of emotion. You have to do that first. The current must-see show in London’s West End!” ★★★★★
Ingo Goellner, Musicalzentrale (Germany)

“Right now, it’s Operation Mincemeat that has people talking. With a huge number of 5* reviews the fast-paced, hilarious production centres around the most bizarre true story you’ve ever heard.”
Daniella Scott, Cosmopolitan

“Showcases the utterly bonkers plot in the most fantastical way… cannot recommend it enough – perfectly cast… beyond doubt one of the most brilliant, funny, captivating shows with proper laugh-out-loud moments… you won’t be disappointed”
Zara Janjua, The Sun

“They just go for it: huge facial expressions, beautifully weird delivery of lines for maximum comic effect, clownish movement… It is that balance of comedy and heart that is this show’s great strength…A brilliant spy thriller, a brilliant comedy, and a brilliant musical all rolled into one, it is exhilarating to see it hit the West End.”
Tim Bano, The Stage 

“there are resonances of everything from Hamilton and Six to Gilbert and Sullivan. There are also homages to Monty Python and Mel Brooks, and even a nod to Flanders and Swann. It feels both utterly contemporary and nostalgically throw-back. And it balances genuine hilarity with enormous heart… The five-strong cast are uniformly excellent… it more than delivers, and stands a shining example of homegrown talent – among many things it’s just so very, very British. It’s also a reminder of why these smaller West End theatres are so vitally important, and are wasted when clogged up by longrunners. But having said that, I don’t anticipate the Fortune being available again for some time to come.”
Theo Bosanquet, WhatsOnStage

Alice Levine, Presenter and Broadcaster
“EXCELLENT!”

Richard Herring, Comedian

“Just seen the phenomenally inventive and entirely surprising OPERATION MINCEMEAT @mincemeatlive, which on its long journey from the fringe to the West End has been much enhanced but not lost its scrappy wit now that it comes with much added glitz. A palpable hit!”
Mark Shenton, Theatre Critic

“This show was witty, funny and incredibly moving (after one unexpected solo I could hear everybody sniffling around me). It was mind-blowing to see a cast of only 5 people play various roles, taking on multiple accents and personalities AND having to sing and perform at that level for over two hours. I would describe it as a Hamilton and Book of Mormon love child if it were written and directed by Richard Curtis with his infectious, British charm. It was truly such a joy and I would see this show again tomorrow and take as many friends as possible with me”
TamsinAmy, Lifestyle and Culture influencer
