Jailhouse Rock to close 23 April 2005
Jailhouse Rock The Musical is to close 23 April 2005.
The show opened at the Piccadilly Theatre on 19 April 2004, following previews from 19 March 2004. The producers announced in December that the show would transfer to the Albery Theatre, but this has now been cancelled!
The show is to vacate the Piccadilly Theatre because Guys and Dolls moves in on 19 May 2005.
Jailhouse Rock The Musical has been adapted for the stage by the writer/director team of Alan Janes and Rob Bettinson whose first collaboration 'Buddy', the story of Buddy Holly, had a 12 year run in the West End, ending in March 2002.
Featuring a catalogue of 1950's rock 'n' roll classics, the show tells the story of Vince Everett, a young man from the wrong side of the tracks who discovers his own unique musical talent whilst doing time in jail and emerges to become the world's greatest rock n' roll star, only to discover that he isn't ready for the pressures that money and fame can bring.
Produced by Theatre Partners, Jailhouse Company and Volcanic Island, Jailhouse Rock The Musical , is directed by Rob Bettinson, designed by Adrian Rees, and choreograped by Drew Anthony.
