Join Captain Tempest and his fearless crew on their journey into hyperspace… and beyond! This winner of the 1990 Olivier Award for Best Musical bursts with red hot rock and roll hits, including ‘Great Balls of Fire’, ‘Good Vibrations’, ‘Teenager in Love’, ‘The Young Ones’ and ‘The Monster Mash’. So fasten your seat belts, set your ray guns to stun and get ready for a cosmic adventure of meteoric proportions!
Bob Carlton’s smash hit West End musical takes the 1956 film, with plot taken from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, raids the Bard’s other plays at will (and not always absolutely verbatim) and sets it to a score of great pop hits from the 1960s and 70s.
