Gary Barlow will perform his one-man stage show A Different Stage in the West End this summer. A Different Stage is at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 30 August to 25 September.

Barlow is one-fifth of the British band, Take That. During his music career, he's won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records. He’s ventured into musical theatre too, with shows including the Take That jukebox musical The Band, as well as The Girls and Finding Neverland.

Barlow’s solo show, A Different Stage, follows the artist as he recounts his life story. So far, he’s performed A Different Stage across the country, however this summer he'll bring the show to London for four weeks.

“Now I've done shows where it has just been me and a keyboard. I've done shows where I sit and talk to people. I've done shows where I've performed as part of a group," said Barlow. "But this one, well, it’s like all of those, but none of them. When I walk out this time, it's going to be a very different stage altogether.”

A Different Stage is co-created by Barlow and Tim Firth. Firth directs, with a creative team including design by Es Devlin, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound design by Gareth Tucker.
