27 New Rock Musical


The Cockpit Theatre
West End

New musical 27 is described as a "modern fable of our time, a dark interpretation of one of humanity’s oldest stories."

27, featuring 13 musical numbers and a cast of 15, is a shattering exploration of the fragility of life and the unwitting connections that bind us together. This rock musical with original lyrics and score serves up songs to die for and killer guitar riffs and will take you somewhere you probably didn’t think existed anymore.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

27 Synopsis: 

Hendrix, Joplin, Cobain, Morrison and Winehouse: all music legends whose lives were tragically cut short at 27. 

Orpheus is a would-be rock star turned icon whose experiences of fame and notoriety lead him on a journey of unstoppable self-destruction. Another name for the list. At the tender age of 27. Another star, extinguished...

In Conversation with Ryan Molloy about new musical 27 at the Cockpit Theatre

Performer Ryan Molloy may well be one of the few UK performers who can be categorised as a recognisable musical theatre star. Having worked in all corners of the performance industry, from being the lead singer of Frankie Goes to Hollywood to song writing with artists such as The Eurythmics, Sting and The Pussycat Dolls he is perhaps best known for creating the role of Frankie Valli in the hit musical Jersey Boys – a role that he continued to play to great acclaim in the West End and on Broadway for six years.
