Osteopathy has never been so lyrical
In 1962 a scandalous affair between the Secretary State of War and an alleged Soviet spy hit the headlines and the law courts. As the matchmaker of these two lovers, osteopath, Stephen Ward, was charged with living off the profits of prostitution. Faced with these accusations, Ward committed suicide in 1963 on the final day of the trial.

The Profumo Affair, as it is known, may seem like an unusual story to turn into a musical, and if it was anyone of than Andrew Lloyd Webber in the driving seat, I would be sceptical about its viability. But Lord Webber is one of the best composers in Musical Theatre; if anyone can pull it off, he can.

The Stephen Ward Musical starts from the 3rd December at Aldwych Theatre with tickets between 15-67.50. To accompany the production, there will be a book with all the lyrics, which have been written by Don Black and Christopher Hampton.
