The Lyric Hammersmith’s critically acclaimed stage production of Sir Alan Parker’s world famous musical Bugsy Malone, will end its scheduled run on Saturday 5 September 2015 following an extension. The production, directed by Sean Holmes, is the UK’s first professional stage production of Bugsy Malone in over a decade and has reopened the Lyric Hammersmith following a multi-million pound redevelopment and creation of the Reuben Foundation Wing.
Bugsy Malone is set in Prohibition era New York with rival gangsters Fat Sam and Dandy Dan at logger heads. As custard pies fly and Dan’s destructive ‘splurge guns’ wreak havoc, Bugsy Malone, a penniless ex-boxer and all round nice guy, falls for Blousey Brown, an aspiring singer. Will Bugsy be able to resist seductive songstress Tallulah, Fat Sam’s moll and Bugsy’s old flame, and stay out of trouble while helping Fat Sam to defend his business?
