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...
Goodbye - The (After) Life of Cook and Moore will run at The Museum of Comedy's Cooper Room from 3 to 28 February 2015, with an official opening on 4 February 2015.
The piece is written by Jonathan Hansler and Clive Greenwood and the cast includes Kev Orkian as Dudley Moore.
Synopsis: "March 27 2002. Dudley Moore dies and finds himself in a bar… this must be heaven? Not quite! This bizarre bar is in a comedian’s limbo run by his old partner Peter Cook, and they face divine judgement for 'Derek & Clive'. Not the best of friends in life, the scene is set for showdown as Peter & Dudley have to resolve their differences, confront their past and face their future in Heaven or Hell. Along the way in this darkly surreal comic fantasy, they are visited by other dead comics whose lives they influenced for good or bad, including Peter Sellers, Tony Hancock, Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howerd."
Kev Orkian's London stage credits include "Fame", "Me & My Girl", "Grease", "Buddy Holly", "Happy Days" and "Boogie Nights". He most recently appeared in "The Infidel - The Musical", which ran at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in east London from 3 October to 2 November of this year.
