It Happened in Key West
Charing Cross Theatre
Richard Curtis meets Tim Burton. Based on a true story, this brand new Musical Comedy takes you on a journey to 1930s Florida, where an eccentric scientist becomes hopelessly inseparable from the woman of his dreams.
Do you believe in undying love?
Count Carl Von Cosel finally finds the girl he's imagined all his life, only to diagnose her with tuberculosis and find out she's married. Hilarious and absurd, this extraordinary love-story follows his desperate attempts to save her life at all costs, and the undying love he displays when she succumbs to her illness.
Dead though she may be, watch Elena come alive with Carl as he lives out their fantasy beneath the palm trees and sunshine of Key West. Funny, surprising, sentimental and heart-warming - this madcap comedy is like nothing you have ever seen!
