Brian Conley starring in Neil Diamond Musical

Comedian and West End Theatre star Brian Conley has recently finished playing Buttons in panto as well as sharing the the role of Edna Turnblad with Michael Ball in Hairspray the musical both in London and on tour.

He is now about to star in Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show which is a musical based around Neil Diamond's mildly controversial fourth album  which upset US evangelists.  The production will be directed by  Craig Revel Horwood.

The show is about a preacher called Brother Love (Conley) who decides the world needs to experience the “Power of Neil” via his music. With a 15 piece band and catchy Neil Diamond songs, he spreads the word and offers salvation with some great dance-moves thrown in.

Revel Horwood was holding auditions for Brother Love earlier this week so more casting news to follow shortly.

Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show will play at open air grounds  inside a heated and adapted big-top offering all the amenities of a standard venue.  It was originally due to tour in October/November but the dates have been changed and below are the latest venues:
