Boy Meets Boy Musical Comedy at Jermyn Street


Jermyn Street Theatre presents the  UK Premiere of the musical comedy Boy Meets Boy which runs there from 1st November to 20th December 2012.

The action takes place in December 1936 in the elegant Savoy Hotel in London where the abdication crisis is reaching its climax, the United States reels from the Great Depression and Continental Europe is shadowed by the menace of Hitler. Inside society London exists in the twilight of empire - a hedonistic bubble where party-goers dance away the last years of peace.

Boy Meets Boy is a world of cocktails and carriages, black-tie and ball-dresses where Nightingales Sing in Berkeley Square and unconventional romance blooms. Boy meets Boy, Boy loses Boy, Boy wins Boy

Book by Bill Solly and Donald Ward: Music and lyrics by Bill Solly: Directed by Gene David Kirk: Musical Director Stefan Bednarczyk: Choreographer Lee Proud: Designer Alice Walkling and Lighting & Sound Design Phil Hewitt

Boy meets Boy opened in 1975 off-Broadway at the Actors' Playhouse and ran for 463 performances. This is its UK premiere.

The cast includes Stephen Ashfield, Johnjo Flynn, Craig Fletcher, Ben Kavanagh

My brother, Richard King, was in the original production of this musical in New York City in the 1970's, and I grew up listening to the album. What an adorable score and story. How I wish I could see this production!
