Jailhouse Rock Musical In The UK

"Jailhouse Rock, the Musical" is from the creators of 'Buddy'. Now an international team of producers, choreographers, designers, song-writers, lighting and stage experts have been gathered to mastermind this new musical production that will chronicle the very early days of rock 'n' roll in the 1950's symbolised in the meteoric rise of historical and religious influences that were the catalyst for the new Musical Explosion that became known as Rock'n'Roll and was epitomised by Elvis Presley. The Musical, "Jailhouse Rock" will launch in England in Plymouth Theatre Royal on February 20th 2004 for just a two week engagement until Saturday 6th March 2004. After that the musical will go to Manchester at the Palace Theatre for the 2nd or 3rd week of March. After that the "Jailhouse Rock" will be Rockin' into London (venue to be announced).

I saw the musical in London, and I loved it. The most remarkable thing is perhaps that the directors chose not to include a single song from the original jailhouse rock soundtrack! Instead, they suceeded at sticking close to the original story by chosing other songs from the presley catalogue; very clever. Altough the plot has been adjusted to suit the political correctness of the 21st century, it doesn't harm the raw rock and roll feel of the performance. Towards the ed everyone was up from their seat, dancing and singing along. I recommend this to all elvis fans!!
