Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
Fame: Not the Musical, will bring comedian David Baddiel to the Menier Chocolate Factory in London.
Following earlier productions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Southbank Centre, Baddiel's latest comedy will enjoy a four week residency at the intimate Menier Chocolate Factory from 29 April to 23 May 2014.
David Baddiel explores the nation's obsession with fame, and aims to speak honestly about exactly what it means to be in the public eye. From altercations with Andrew Lloyd Webber, to upstaging Russell Brand at his own wedding, Fame: Not the Musical is set to challenge the public's own perception of Baddiel as a celebrity.
This stand up comedy begins performances at the Menier Chocolate Factory on 29 April, with a press night on 1 May, and is booking until 23 May 2014.
