Neil Diamond's Brother Love heading for Gielgud?

Brian Conley has got a very busy time ahead if the Mail's Baz Bamigboye’s is correct that he and Darren Day are in negotiations to bring the Neil Diamond musical Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation Show into the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End some time this autumn.

Conley is playing Buttons in Cinderella at the Birmingham Hippodrome over Christmas and then going on to share the role of  Fagin in the new tour of Oliver! which opens on 13th December at the Cardiff Millennium Centre with Men Behaving Badly’s Neil Morrissey in the role. Conley takes over next year at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre on 1st May 2012 and plays the part until 13th November when Morrissey returns. Presumably Conley will then be off to start rehearsals for his next panto!

Brother Love toured earlier this year with Conley playing preacher Brother Love who decides the world needs to experience the “Power of Neil” via his music. This production was directed by Craig Revel Horwood and starred Darren Day and Ben James-Ellis.  It played at open air grounds inside a heated and adapted big-top.

I saw this show when it was on tour and it was FANTASTIC! Brian Conley was such fun and Darren Day was amazing in it - what a voice. Would love to see it again with the family.
