NEWS: Full Cast Announced for Tony! (The Tony Blair Rock Opera)

Harry Hill and Steve Brown’s musical is set to have a London run and UK tour.

The full cast has been announced for the London run and UK Tour of Harry Hill and Steve Brown’s musical, set to open at London’s Leciester Square Theatre from the 15 April to 21 May before embarking on a UK tour from the 25th May.

A reckless reappraisal of the life of former Ugly Rumours front man and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades. Throw in a stellar cast of larger-than-life characters – Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Osama bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein and Gordon Brown – it’s Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show! and a musical like no other.

The musical’s creative team includes: set and costume design by Libby Watson, lighting design by Mark Dymock, sound design by Richard Brooker, choreography by Francesca Jaynes and casting by Debbie O’Brien.
