Set in Prohibition-era New York, Bugsy Malone follows the title character in a city complete with dreamers and mobsters. Although he’s professed his love to Blousey Brown, Bugsy can’t take his eyes off of club singer Tallulah, and often finds himself in trouble. Bugsy Malone features songs including “Tomorrow” and “My Name is Tallulah.”

This production of Bugsy Malone premiered at Lyric Hammersmith. In a London Theatre review of Bugsy Malone, our critic said: “These guys and these dolls are truly something special here, brimming with character and invention… [the backstage musical] puts the Lyric Hammersmith and its vibrant community of young actors back in business as one of London's liveliest, most youthful theatres.”
