It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
Eric and Little Ern returns to London for the Christmas season, playing at the St James Theatre, a 312-seat Off West End venue in Victoria, from 16 December 2014 to 11 January 2015.
Created and performed by Ian Ashpitel and Jonty Stephens, Eric and Little Ern also features material by Eddie Braben, Dick Hills and Sid Green. The creative team behind the comedy includes scenic design by Simon Scullion and lighting by Tim Mascall. The show is produced by Seabright Productions.
Synopsis: "Recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie’s television and stage performances, cherished moments from the archives sit alongside new material created by the performers. The show recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe and Wise in their heyday, featuring classic material including the original Grieg Piano Concerto sketch and Eric’s take on Shakespeare."
This will mark the show's second London Christmas season, following last year's successful run at the Vaudeville Theatre in the West End, and will follow on from a 39-date UK tour at the Manchester Opera House on 30 September.
