George Maguire to play Marc Bolan in new tour of 20th Century Boy

Initial casting has been announced for a new tour of 20th Century Boy, which opens at G-Live in Guildford on 8th  March before touring to 27 venues across the UK.

George Maguire (who won an Olivier Award for his performance in the Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon) returns to lead the cast as Marc Bolan.  This follows his critically acclaimed performance in the original production  in 2011/12.

20th Century Boy is directed by John Maher and charts the life story of Bolan and his band T.Rex. The new tour marks the 40th anniversary of his untimely death in a car crash at the age of 29.

The production features a new script by Nicky Graham and Colin Giffin and more than 20 Bolan songs including "Get It On", "Metal Guru" and "I Love To Boogie".
