Gary Barlow's ‘A Different Stage’ to play in the West End
The Take That singer’s one-man show is at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
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 three weeks.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed performing ‘A Different Stage’ at venues across the country for the past few months.” said Barlow. “Bringing it to London is a dream come true and The Duke of York’s Theatre is the perfect setting for this story.”
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.
A Different Stage is at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 30 August to 18 September.
