Adrian Schiller replaces Jud Charlton in Hit Me! The Life & Rhymes of Ian Dury. The show now opens at the Leicester Square Theatre 13 Jan 2009, following previews from 6 Jan - running to 15 Feb 2009.

Adrian Schiller's London stage credits include "The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other" at the Lyttelton, NT in 2008; "Madame Bovary: Breakfast With Emma" at the Lyric in 2003; and many productions for the RSC.

Written & directed by Jeff Merrifield the show also features Josh Darcy

A warts-and-all portrait of the man who put the phrase 'sex and drugs and rock and roll' into the national psyche. Publicly, Ian Dury was a cheeky chappie and purveyor of saucy lyrics. Privately, he was a flawed maestro wrestling with demons. The show focuses on three key moments - at the peak of success, on the cusp of a comeback, and just after his death - and features seven of his most famous songs performed LIVE, including Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Reasons to be Cheerful.
