20th Century Boy, The Musical
Last year really was a big Year in the development of “20th CENTURY BOY – The Show”. We won BEST NEW PRODUCTION of a Musical (Fringe/Regions) in the poll run by the prestigious Theatrical Magazine BroadwayWorld UK / - with 30% of all votes cast! We came out as Winner! (You can read some glowing reviews from the Theatrical Press using the links below).
If you were not able to make it to see the Show you may have seen on FaceBook that we got a 9/10 approval rating from Bolan Fans. For my part I am just happy to confirm the fact that around 60,000 people went to see the Show and we seem to have made a heck of a lot of people very happy.

We are even looking at several options for 2015 – including the possibility of a West End run.
Featuring some of the greatest rock songs ever written, '20th Century Boy' is a celebration of the life of Marc Bolan and his band T.Rex and stars some of the greatest singers and dancers from London’s West End.
Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam, godfather of punk - Marc Bolan tried on many styles for size in his search to become a superstar.
Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans. This dynamic new musical looks behind the glitter and the sequins to discover what drove the “bard of Hackney” to become “bigger than the Beatles”.
The Show is packed with all of T. Rex’s 70s hits including Ride A White Swan, Metal Guru, Get It On, I Love To Boogie, Children Of The Revolution and of course the title track 20th Century Boy!
