Daddy Cool, the new musical set to the tunes of Boney M, follows Sunny, a young Londoner that lives for music. Echoing the tale of Romeo And Juliet, Sunny is ensnared by the rivalry between local London crews when he falls for Rose, the daughter of infamous East London club owner Ma Baker. The young lovers only fuel the gangs’ hatred; a hatred which forces families to confront both past and future.
In addition to the many well known hits of Boney M – hits which include Rivers Of Babylon, Brown Girl In The Ring and Mary’s Boychild – Daddy Cool also features the music of other artists produced by Frank Farian, including Milli Vanilli and No Mercy.
Daddy Cool stars former So Solid Crew member Harvey, who makes his West End debut as Shake. In addition to winning two MOBOs, a Brit Award and having a platinum selling debut album, Harvey has also spent time hosting TV shows, appearing on Channel 4’s The Games and starring in Out For A Kill opposite Hollywood hard man Stephen Segal.
