The record-breaking My Neighbour Totoro will begin a limited run at London's Barbican in November.
The award-winning My Neighbour Totoro will return to London's Barbican this autumn.

The production opened at the Barbican in October 2022, where it received both critical and audience acclaim, winning five What’s on Stage Awards, and being nominated for nine Olivier Awards. It concluded its run in January 2023.
My Neighbour Totoro will return to the Barbican from Tuesday 21 November to Saturday 23 March 2024. Priority booking opens on Tuesday 11 April and public booking will open on Friday 21 April 2023.
