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...
Mrs Hudson's Christmas Corker, by Bob and Barry Cryer, in association with Spymonkey, will run at Wilton’s Music Hall in east London, from 2 to 31 December 2014.
The comedy is Wilton’s first specially commissioned Christmas show and is directed by Ed Gaughan, with set design by Lucy Bradridge.
Synopsis: "Situated in the kitchen of the celebrated 221B Baker Street, this 'riotous' production contrasts the minutiae of a landlady’s daily domestic routine with the grand opera of Conan Doyle’s Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. Witness the tale of what really happens below stairs in an affectionate yet hilarious take on the Holmes legend, using music hall routines, tatty magicians, cod ventriloquists, lady boxers and perhaps even a death defying finale worthy of Moriarty himself! Mulled wine and Christmas trees come as standard."
The production is part of The Chrysalis Club, an interim arts programme of events, during planned building works at the venue until autumn 2015.
