Jailhouse Rock to transfer to Albery Theatre in May 2005
Jailhouse Rock The Musical is transferring to the Albery Theatre, St. Martin's Lane, in May 2005 where it will be booking through to 24th October 2005, allowing theatre owner ATG to present Guys and Dolls with Ewan McGregor at the Piccadilly in May 2005.
Jailhouse Rock The Musical will take over the Albery theatre following the RSC's new London season.
The show 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.
