David Essex’s new musical ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR will have its London premiere tonight at the Garrick Theatre.
Best known as a recording artist who sold millions of albums in the 70s and 80s, David Essex is also an established writer and performer for theatre. He first came to prominence in musical theatre starring as Jesus in the original West End production of Godspell in 1972 and Che in Evita in 1978 and went on to co-write and star in Mutiny at the Piccadilly Theatre.
And now David returns to the London stage in All The Fun Of The Fair, a show he has co-written with Boogie Nights creator Jon Conway and that features a range of David Essex hits and album favourites – notably inspired by his debut album ‘All The Fun Of The Fair’.
Show show also stars Christopher Timothy and Louise English, with the leading role of David’s son Jack played by Michael Pickering.
