"Colourful and bursting with enthusiasm. Physical comedy, relentless one-liners; revels in haphazard brilliance." The Guardian
"Packed with energy and warmth. So check your head, get it together and make some noise." Time Out
“Utterly brilliant and totally irresistible ★★★★★” The Stage
Licensed To Ill is a big-hearted, brash new show.
It's a crazy hip-hop history tour that will have you laughing and gasping in equal measure.
The production won over critics and audiences during a sellout tour that was extended by public demand. It now comes to Southwark Playhouse and for one night we have the newest musical in town for an exclusive budget price.

LICENSED TO ILL
Licensed to Ill follows the creation of the legendary band, the Beastie Boys from wannabe punk rockers to hip-hop superstars.
Follow the band as they find their way to the top of the charts through a combination of talent, accident and arrogance.
A theatre-gig mash-up which incorporates three MCs, one DJ and a whole lot of noise, Licensed To Ill does to music theatre what the Beastie Boys did to the humble tracksuit: makes it cool.

This year, Time Out named Southwark Playhouse one of their top ten London venues.
At the 2016 Off West End Awards, the Playhouse became the leading Off West End Theatre, winning in six categories, far more than any other London venue.
It is close to a variety of transport routes. The nearest tube stations are Borough (5 minutes) and Elephant and Castle (3 minutes).
"The busiest and biggest theatre on the London Fringe, Southwark Playhouse has a lively bar and a formidable reputation." Time Out
