Music can change your body temperature, your mood… it can even change your life. And if the music is accompanied by a beautiful story you share with your loved ones, then the experience will be etched in your memory, full of the deep emotions that enrich life. These emotions feed the soul and one of easiest ways to experience them is to let yourself get carried away by the magic of a musical.
Right now in Spain there are a number of these works of art on offer, each of which will send your soul soaring with the spirit of the music. Here at Vincci we’d encourage you to head out and discover some of the best of them, all in places where you’ll find a Vincci – the perfect spot to rest and recall the laughter you shared during the day. A trip away and a visit to a musical, it’s a perfect experience!

Priscilla [Link in Spanish]
‘Priscilla’ tells the entertaining experiences of three friends who travel through the Australian desert onboard a rickety bus – that gives its name to the musical – taking their daring drag spectacle on a voyage in search of love and friendship.
With the biggest disco hits of all time, from Tina Turner to Madonna, the sound track is the most danceable in history – an uninterrupted parade of song and dance that makes ‘Priscilla’ the ‘feel-good’ musical par excellence.
To talk of Grease is to talk of one of the genre’s biggest hits. Renowned and acclaimed the world over as an icon of 20th century popular culture, it captures the vibrant attitude of adolescence with a soundtrack and characters that never get old. A tremendous show that led to one of the biggest grossing films of all time.
Jorge Bettancor and Marta Arteta star in this abridged version of the musical, which can be seen from 1 November to 7 December 2014, in the Rialto Theatre in Madrid.
