Fame The Musical will be making a stop in London as part of a leg in its 30th-anniversary tour.
The show opened in Manchester back in July and the UK tour will continue into 2019, arriving at London’s Peacock Theatre between 11 September 2019 and 19 October 2019.
Based on the 1980 teen drama film of the same name, Fame The Musical follows the lives of students at New York’s High School for The Performing Arts (now known as LaGuardia High School) from freshmen year all the way to graduation. The 1980 film received a remake in 2009, also called Fame, with the tagline “Dream it. Earn it. Live it.” Both films were a box office success but, naturally, many favour the original on which this musical is based.
Fame The Musical features music by Steve Margoshes and lyrics by Jacques Levy, who together bring such toe-tapping numbers as There She Goes/Fame!, Bring On Tomorrow, and Can’t Keep It Down.
The current UK tour cast stars Keith Jack (Any Dream Will Do) as Nick Piazza, Jorgie Porter (Hollyoaks) as Iris Kelly and Mica Paris as Miss Sherman.
