About My Neighbour Totoro

Don't miss the theatrical event of 2025 as the record-breaking, award- winning My Neighbour Totoro transfers to London's West End.

Find your spirit with the return of the "awe-inspiring" (Time Out) production of Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro, in collaboration with Improbable and Nippon TV. Following two rapturously received, sell-out runs at the Barbican, discover this five-star, ground-breaking "triumph" (Telegraph) at the Gillian Lynne Theatre from 8 March 2025.

Winner of six Olivier Awards, this "utterly beguiling" (The Stage) and “jaw- dropping” (Metro) staging of the celebrated 1988 animated feature film is brought to you by the Royal Shakespeare Company and Executive Producer Joe Hisaishi, and adapted by Tom Morton-Smith (Oppenheimer). Hailed as “a tender and remarkably beautiful show” (Financial Times), My Neighbour Totoro is an enchanting coming-of-age story exploring the magical fantasy world of childhood and the transformative power of imagination, as it follows one extraordinary summer in the lives of sisters Satsuki and Mei.

Astonishing puppetry, Magical stagecraft, Faithful adaptation

See it if you like to witness a masterclass in transferring this gorgeous Miyazaki animation movie to the stage, an artistic triumph and visual feast.

Don’t see it if you're looking for more than just stage magic. Show is almost TOO faithful to movie narrative, meandering and too cutesy for its own good.

Too many bells and whistles, Great staging, Entertaining, Ambitious, Clever

See it if you like stories of children discovering the world.Staging is very clever,interesting use of puppets.Very high tech.

Don’t see it if you prefer a more straightforward story telling.There are a lot of bells & whistles.My performance was stopped b/c of tech issues.

Great staging, Delightful, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you enjoyed the movie. It's pretty much the movie scene for scene with some clever stage work to make the characters comet to life.

Don’t see it if you didn't enjoy the movie or if you're looking for an improvement on the movie. It doesn't really divert from the movie too much.
