The production will run on 4th September, 2nd October, 6th November and 4th December 2017.
Having toured internationally this musical evening takes audiences through the story of Simon & Garfunkel’s incredible career. Having formed in 1957 as Tom & Jerry, Simon & Garfunkel went on to become the world’s most iconic folk rock group. From their humble beginnings, right through their worldwide successes and bitter break-up, culminating with a stunning recreation of their 1981 Central Park reformation concert, audiences can re-live the moments that justified their ten Grammy Awards and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
The production uses contemporary newsreels, adverts and film footage from the 1960s and beyond in order to tell this exciting musical tale.
The cast includes Sam O’Hanlon (Paul Simon) and Charles Blyth (Art Garfunkel) alongside a full live band and brass ensemble. The show includes the hit songs "Mrs Robinson", "Cecilia", "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "Homeward Bound", "The Sound of Silence" and many more.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story previously ran in London at the Leicester Square Theatre in 2015 and continues to enjoy international success from Sydney to Seattle.
