Take That lead singer and acclaimed songwriter Gary Barlow is set to bring his A Different Stage one-man show to the West End this Summer.
A Different Stage will play at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 30 August to 18 September 2022.
The show was created by Gary Barlow and his regular collaborator Tim Firth. The pair also worked together on the hit musical version of Calendar Girls.
Gary also plans to continue touring his show around the UK. Recent dates include Liverpool, Edinburgh and Manchester.
This theatrical one man stage show tells Gary’s story, in his own words, and sees him narrate the journey of his life alongside the music from his incredible discography.
Gary Barlow told the press today that: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed performing ‘A Different Stage’ at venues across the country for the past few months. Bringing it to London is a dream come true and The Duke of York’s Theatre is the perfect setting for this story.”
Gary Barlow is one of Britain’s most successful songwriters and record producers. As part of the group Take That, he has won eight BRIT Awards and sold over 45 million records. Aside from his achievements with Take That, he has also co-written and produced music for other renowned artists including Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Elton John and Robbie Williams.
Gary is also a stage fan, having composed the scores for the successful production of Finding Neverland; working alongside Tim Firth on Calendar Girls The Musical; and collaborating with Tim and his Take That bandmates on The Band, the musical currently being adapted into a movie.
A Different Stage is directed by Tim Firth, with design by Es Devlin, lighting by Bruno Poet and sound design by Gareth Tucker.
