“A dazzling series of gender-switching roles…a Beyoncé-esque assertion of female power…excellent performers… There are some big, blowsy shows around in the West End, but this little belter is staging its own audacious invasion plan” ★★★★★
Suzi Feay, Financial Times

“A miraculous musical that tells the entire story in a kind of accelerated farce that is part Mel Brooks, part SIX, part Hamilton with a side order of One Man, Two Guvnors.” ★★★★★
Neil Norman, The Daily Mirror

“This is the musical you didn’t know you needed… a little show with a very big future.”
David Benedict, Variety

Sony Music is delighted to announce the full Original London Cast Recording of the critically acclaimed  Operation Mincemeat – A New Musical will be released on Friday, 12th May 2023. The album will be released on CD, vinyl, streaming and digital platforms, and is now available to pre-order HERE.

Two additional fan favourites, All the Ladies and Das Übermensch, will be released soon.

The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse. 
 
Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, Operation Mincemeat is the fast-paced, hilarious and unbelievable true story of the twisted secret mission that won us World War II. The question is, how did a well-dressed corpse wrong-foot Hitler?
