He recently starred on stage in Betty Blue Eyes at the Novello Theatre, The Producers at Theatre Royal Drury Lane and Ghost Stories at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
Cool Rider has added a second performance due to phenomenal demand. The performance will take place at 11pm on Monday 27th January 2014.
The synopsis for Cool Rider is:
The film told the heady and daring love story of two unlikely lovers and their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending. Now, this concert of the songs from the much loved and even more maligned 1982 cult musical will come to the West End for one night only, featuring the hit songs Who’s That Guy?, Score Tonight, Cool Rider (which will be sung precariously atop a step ladder without the aid of wires for safety), Girl for all Seasons and the haunting melody of Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming).
