Overview

The Olivier Award-winning Sean Holmes returned to direct his critically acclaimed production of Bugsy Malone, following a sold out run in 2015. The show re-opened on the 11th June 2016 at the Lyric Theatre and is ran until the 4th September 2016.

With stunning choreography by Drew McOnie and featuring all the classic songs from Oscar-winning writer Paul Williams, such as My Name is Tallulah, So You Wanna Be a Boxer and Bad Guys, this return of this acclaimed production of the much loved musical was one not to be missed.

Sean Holmes is currently Artistic Director of London’s Lyric Theatre, known for such productions as Saved, Blasted and Treasure Island. His 2015 production of Bugsy Malone was the first professional West End production of the classic musical in more than a decade and was met with glowing reviews.

The musical is set in prohibition era New York, based on the exploits of famous gangsters such as Al Capone and Bugs Moran, but featuring a cast of only child actors. The result is an unforgettable and charming depiction of the warring gangs, who eventually realise that they can just be friends. The original film was nominated for a range of awards at the Golden Globes and Oscars.

This new production featured a rotating cast of child actors, including Mark Charles, Louis Doran and Adryan Dorset-Pitt as Bugsy Malone, Danya Cherry Chapman Dixon, Tabitha Knowles and Georgia Pemberton as Blousey Brown, Rhianna Dorris, Olivia Shaye Materson and Leni Zieglmeir as Tallulah and Vincent Finch, Max Gill and Maddison Tyson as Fat Sam.

Bugsy Malone returned to the Lyric Theatre on 11th June 2016 and played until 4th September 2016, making it a must see summer musical for any London theatregoers.

Recommended for

Fans of the original film should not miss the opportunity to see a brilliant professional production of this fantastic yet rarely performed musical.
