★★★★★ “A riotous love letter to the movies of the ‘80s and an absurd comedy that sits amongst the likes of Airplane and The Naked Gun – definitely very good company. It’s an absolute blast!” WhatsOnStage

★★★★ “This new musical is unashamedly entertaining… I laughed and laughed! Bullet-quick comic timing.” Daily Mail

★★★★★ “My face was hurting from laughing…stupendously successful, and already proving addictive.” All That Dazzles

Following a riotous hit run at Southwark Borough in 2023, the critically acclaimed ‘hilarious’, ‘bonkers’ and ‘dazzling’ POLICE COPS THE MUSICAL returns bigger and better than ever.

USA, 1980. In an era of tight jeans, fast cars, and uncompromising facial hair, a pair of mismatched police cops  are on the case to bring down the baddest cat in America!

Police Cops The Musical… All singing, all dancing, all guns blazing.

Written by multi award winning comedy company POLICE COPS with an original score by Brit Award winning BEN ADAMS (Eugenius), POLICE COPS THE MUSICAL returns with more madness, more jokes and even more lucky eggs.

Don’t miss the anticipated return of the ‘cleverest comedy musical in London’ (Theatre Weekly) for seven weeks only. Make sure you ‘catch them now, before they take over the world.’ (WhyNow).
