London’s favourite musical-singalong, OVERTURES PIANO BAR is at Lola’s Underground Casino at The Hippodrome, Leicester Square, every Thursday from 8pm – Midnight and every Friday and Saturday from 8pm – 2am.

Considered to be London’s answer to the renowned Marie’s Crisis Café in New York, Overtures Piano Bar offers a spontaneous evening out with just the crowd, the piano, the pianist and the showtunes to see you through the evening. With no set list, no stage and no microphone, customers are invited to sing as much or as little as they want in an environment that welcomes everyone from all cultures, genders, sexual orientations, backgrounds, and singing levels.

Songs on offer for people to sing-along range from popular classics such as Les Misérables, Wicked, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music and Grease, to the cult showtunes from Stephen Sondheim’s musicals and everything in between. Overtures also features regular guest appearances from the famed pianists and singing bar tenders from Marie’s Crisis Café as well as our London talent.

Ray Rackham, who founded Overtures and created the London musical theatre singalong scene said: “What started as a one-week folly in 2018 lead to a permanent establishment that only a pandemic could close! Whilst we were in lockdown waiting to reopen one thing was clear to me, we had to find a location right in the heart of Theatreland. And what a venue, the site where Judy Garland played her last London concerts, which welcomed the likes of Sophie Tucker and Liza Minnelli, and where Ethel Merman made her only British appearances. We never anticipated the hunger of the public of London, in needing a place to sing out loud until the wee small hours; we just needed to make sure our clientele could get from theatre to singalong in a hop, skip or jump. I’m so happy Overtures has teamed up with the Hippodrome to glow up our unique singalong experience.”
