2:00pm Tuesday 6th May 2014 in Theatre
WEST End and Musical theatre star Warren Sollars will lead the cast of the musical, 20th Century Boy, playing the Glam Rock legend Marc Bolan when it hits the Bristol Hippodrome stage next week. He will be joined by TV stars Sue Jenkins and Luke Bailey.
20th Century Boy is the culmination of five years’ development and this new production will tour throughout the UK from April 2014, showcasing 24 of Marc Bolan and T.Rex’s best-known iconic hits including Ride A White Swan, I Love To Boogie and Get It On.
20th Century Boy is directed and choreographed by Gary Lloyd (Thriller Live, Fame), who said: “After working on this very special project for over five years, I am extremely excited to take Marc Bolan's classic catalogue of songs out on the road in the UK. Marc is still very loved by a whole generation of fans and I really hope this piece will open up some of his greatest hits to a whole new generation. With a remarkable new cast, including Sue Jenkins, Luke Bailey and Warren Sollars, we are celebrating with this number one national tour. I hope the UK are ready to don their feather boas, rock out in their 70's heels and Get It On!"
The show runs from Monday 12 to Saturday 17 May. For more details, visit www.20thcenturyboythemusical.co.uk
