Idiots Assemble: Spitting Image The Musical

Book Spitting Image Musical tickets to see the world-famous puppets live on stage in a brand new theatrical extravaganza

The puppets are let loose in theatreland for the first time ever in Idiots Assemble: Spitting Image The Musical! Join Tiny Top Gun Tom and co as they face a cabal of villains at the Phoenix Theatre. This hilarious new show arrives in London after a bombastic world premiere at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. 

King Charles has summoned Tom Cruise for a top-secret mission, and the mighty film star will need all the help he can get! Cue the creation of a Magnificent Seven, who are ready to save the UK from dastardly bad guys who will do anything to destroy it. 

With over 100 puppets appearing on stage, Spitting Image live in the West End is a rip-roaring ride packed with songs, dancing and disrespect. The wildest events of the last few years (and maybe even the last few days…) are sent up in a West End show that boasts a bit of glitz, a bit of glamour, a lot of satire and absolutely no Michael Ball or Sheridan Smith. 

The puppet cast includes Tom Cruise, Ian McKellen, the Tory Cabinet, King Charles, Paddington Bear, Stormzy, Greta Thunberg, Angela Rayner, Elon Musk and many more. 

The Spitting Image musical had a 5-star reviewed world premiere in Birmingham in February 2023, 40 years after the iconic television show was first filmed in the city. 

Its tour-de-force creative team is led by original Spitting Image co-creator Roger Law, and includes Al Murray, Matt Forde and Olivier Award winner Sean Foley (Upstart Crow, The Play What I Wrote). Foley, Artistic Director of Birmingham Rep, also directs. 

This hilarious musical is lovingly inspired by and wickedly appalled by recent events. Get ready to relive them in the (rubber) flesh at the Spitting Image musical, running for a limited season this summer.
