Fame - The Musical - New Wimbledon Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
A NEW production of Fame – The Musical opens at New Wimbledon Theatre on Thursday, February 20, 2014 ahead of a major UK tour.
Based on the Oscar-winning musical film and hugely successful TV series, this new production will take audiences on a hi-octane roller coaster ride through dizzy heights and crashing lows as a group of star-struck wannabes embark on their quest for the ultimate accolade – fame.
At the world famous High School for Performing Arts, New York, young talented hopefuls undertake the journey of their lives. Ambition, triumph, heartbreak and romance conspire to steer them off course, and the pressure is too much for some.
Bursting with dynamic dance routines and unforgettable songs including Play a Love Scene and Fame, Fame – The Musical has enjoyed seven West End runs since premiering in the USA in 1988 and continues to be performed all over the world.
Produced by Bill Kenwright, Fame – the Musical will be directed by award-winning director/choreographer Gary Lloyd, whose credits include Thriller Live, 20th Century Boy, Flash Mob and The Story of Mark Bolan.
The full tour schedule has yet to be announced.
