It’s strange to say but the West End will soon be welcoming the Sound Of Silence. Don’t worry, the shows will go on at full volume but an exciting show is coming to town for a strictly limited run. Following a critically-acclaimed run in 2015, the hugely successful The Simon And Garfunkel Story will be making its West End comeback later this year. The show will play at the Vaudeville Theatre for one week only this November.
The show also continues to play limited dates at the Lyric Theatre.
The Simon And Garfunkel Story will take you through all the songs and stories that shaped the iconic duo. The critically acclaimed concert-style show chronicles the rise of the pair from their humble start as 50s rock ‘n’ roll act Tom And Jerry to absolute global superstardom. You’ll see their eventual dramatic break-up at the peak of their international success, plus their solo careers. The autobiographical show ends with a stunning recreation of the legendary 1981 New York Central Park reunion concert which was attended by 500,000 fans.
The multi-media show won’t just use the act’s extensive and beloved back catalogue, it’ll also use state of the art video projection, contemporary newsreel footage, and TV commercials to tell the tale. It’ll also have a live brass ensemble providing the tunes for the evening.
The jukebox musical will feature all of Simon And Garfunkel’s greatest hits including Mrs Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, The Boxer, The Sound Of Silence, and many, many more.
Philip Murray Warson will play Paul Simon with Charles Blyth as Art Garfunkel. Leon Camfield will be on bass, Adam Smith on electric guitar/keyboards, Mat Swales on drums, and Tim Bloomer on guitar. Director and Musical Supervision will be by Dean Elliott.
There will only be eight performances of The Simon And Garfunkel Story at the Vaudeville Theatre, which will take place from 12-17 November 2018.
