The Lyric Hammersmith’s hugely successful production of Bugsy Malone will return to the theatre for 12 week run in summer 2016.
This critically acclaimed production of Sir Alan Parker’s beloved stage show is directed by Sean Holmes and features music and lyrics by Paul Williams.
It will open once again at the Lyric Hammersmith on the 24th June, with previews from the 11th June, performing until the 4th September.
The production originally opened at the theatre in April this year and was the UK’s first professional stage production of the show in over a decade.
Set in Prohibition era New York, the show sees rival gangsters Fat Sam and Dandy Dan at loggerheads. As the custard pies fly and ‘splurge guns’ cause havoc, Bugsy Malone falls for Blousey Brown an aspiring singer. But will he be able to resist Tallulah his old flame while helping Fat Sam defend his business?
While casting has yet to be announced, director Sean Holmes said: “I’m so pleased that Bugsy Malone is returning to the Lyric. I’m delighted our audience will get a further opportunity to relish Alan Parker’s inspired creation and to be transported by the talent and energy of our young cast.”
Meanwhile Sir Alan Parker commented: “The 2015 production was beautifully mounted by Sean Holmes and his team and a revelation to me – by far and away the best stage production of it I’ve ever seen.”
Bugsy Malone will return to the Lyric Hammersmith from the 14th June until the 4th September 2016. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.lyric.co.uk/whats-on/production/bugsy-malone/?pes=2016-06-01 .
