After an extensive tour of the UK recently, the original Essex Boy returns to the West End with his musical drama, 'All The Fun Of The Fair'. David Essex stars and contributes some of his vast catalogue of songs to this already successful production and now brings it to the Garrick Theatre for a four-month run, starting on April 17th and continuing until September 5th.
Tickets are on sale now and cost from £40 plus fees. There will be matinees on Wed, Sat and Sunday with all other evening performances daily (not Mondays).
'All The Fun...' concerns the life and loves of one Levi Lee, a fairground owner who has become recently widowed and left with a rebellious teenage son to nurture. A new love interest presents itself in the form of his fortune-teller who warns him of impending danger. What's the betting they'll be riding off into the sunset on his 'Silver Dream Machine'? Well, maybe not - there are a few twists in the plot and a few songs. 'Hold Me Close' is bound to make a showing...'Gonna Make You A Star'?...I reckon. Roll up and enjoy...
In the midst of the shows, David will be on the 'Once in a Lifetime 2010' tour with the Osmonds, Leo Sayer and Les McKeown's Legendary Bay City Rollers - between 25th June and 3rd July.
