Roller skates should not be confused with roller steaks, which are difficult to enjoy on sloped surfaces. Slide into entertainment with today’s Groupon: £19.75 for a top-price ticket to see Starlight Express at Liverpool Empire.
Still one of the most visually stunning theatre pieces of all time, Starlight Express is a fast-paced, futuristic musical, jam-packed with catchy numbers. The story is about toy railway trains that come to life in the mind of a young boy, and which compete to win the title of fastest engine in the world. With actors on roller skates playing the roles of the trains, the show oozes incomparable energy and speed, partnered with memorable tunes.
About The Show
Entertaining audiences worldwide since 1984 with its mind-boggling choreography on wheels, the award-winning Starlight Express is one of musical mastermind Andrew Lloyd Webber’s babies. The spectacular show is back with a new 2012 production, courtesy of Bill Kenwright, which will be touring the UK.
This dramatically historic establishment has played happy host to acclaimed performances since 1866. With a choice of matinee and evening performances throughout late July, guests will be able to settle into a top-price seat for prime viewing of the cherished show, perhaps after a pre-theatre bite at the Autograph Cafe Bar.

Though yet to be reviewed at the Liverpool Empire, earlier stops on Starlight Express' tour received positive write-ups from critics at The Stage as well as The Public Reviews. Reviewers praised the show's energy and choreography, as well as the set design.
The show was always more an exercise in theatrical spectacle rather than content, too, but by reducing the scale, Phillips also uncovers some of the charm that has always been lurking below it, as old technology - in this case, a steam train - triumphs over its more modern electricity and diesel rivals. – Mark Shenton, The Stage, May 2012
The band, under the direction of Dave Rose deserve a special mention for bringing the score to life and their excellent playing throughout. This latest touring version of Starlight Express is high energy, with some magical musical moments performed by a very strong cast. – Laura Stimpson, The Public Reviews, May 2012
