Bombay Dreams
 

Bombay Dreams combines the glamour of the movies,
heart-aching romance and epic spectacle.

With the self penned hits Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats and The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber has for over 30 years conquered the world with his popular and ground-breaking approach to musical entertainment. Now, as producer of Bombay Dreams, with music by phenomenal Indian composer A R Rahman, he rewrites the history books once more.

A feast for the sense, Bombay Dreams combines the glamour of the movies, heart-aching romance and epic spectacle. It tells the story of Akaash, a young slum dweller, who dreams of becoming a huge movie star, and of his fateful encounter with beautiful Priya, the daughter of one of Bollywood's greatest film directors. Can he achieve his dream of stardom or will this come at a price? Will Akaash and Priya's love survive? And will they find, like in all the best Bollywood movies, their happy ending?

Stunningly conceived and featuring a brilliant script by Meera Syal with lyrics by Don Black, Bombay Dreams is a unique fusion of talent from the worlds of stage, film, TV and contemporary music. Add to this lush production design and spectacular choreography and the result is both breathtaking and totally unmissable.

The Beautiful Game

Life is just beginning for a group of teenagers. Amongst them are Father O'Donnel's football team including Del and John who both have enough talent to make it big. Their girlfriends, Mary and Christine are dreaming about what to do with their lives and worrying about the way their world is changing. Yearning for a time when they can live and love in peace, they all learn that to escape from bigotry and intolerance will take all the courage they can muster.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton's musical is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. The Beautiful Game follows the fortunes of a group of teenagers, all members of a local soccer team, and their friends.

Under the watchful eye of team coach Father O'Donnel, John and Del both show enough promise to pursue careers as professional footballers.

They're just two regular teenagers who dream of nothing more than girls and football. When they find love with Mary and Christine, they become swept up in the events that engulf their community and as time passes each one of them has to decide whether or not to follow their hearts.

Ben Elton tells their story with humour and compassion and his lyrics are both funny and heartbreaking. Andrew Lloyd Webber's evocative new score combines heart searing ballads and stirring anthems with the sounds of Ireland. This powerful and passionate musical is a joyous celebration of the freedom that love can bring.

Tell Me On A Sunday
 
Following the extended West End season, starring Denise Van Outen, the new production toured the UK, starring either Marti Webb, Patsy Palmer or Faye Tozer...  depending on the venue...
 

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black's classic Tell Me On A Sunday charts the course of a young English girl newly arrived in New York . Brimming with optimism, she sets out to seek success, companionship and, of course, love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether - in fact - she's been looking for love in all the wrong places.

Tell Me on a Sunday was originally a hit album and television special written for Marti Webb in 1979. Subsequently it was seen on in London and on Broadway as one half of Song & Dance. The 2003/4 West End production featured many of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black's most famous and poignant songs, including the title song, Take That Look Off Your Face and Unexpected Song . Tell Me on a Sunday was expanded to a whole evening's entertainment and also featured five brand new songs written especially for the production.
