Hilarious musical from Harry Hill

Harry Hill & Steve Brown present a hilarious new rock opera about Brit Pop Prime Minister Tony Blair.

A reckless reappraisal of the life of former Ugly Rumours front man and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Throw in a stellar cast of larger-than-life characters – Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Osama bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein and Gordon Brown and you’ve got one hell of a weapon of mass distraction! 

With crowd-pleasers like ‘Macro Economics’ and the haunting ballad ‘I Never Done Anything Wrong’ – it’s Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show! and a musical like no other.

Tony! [The Tony Blair Rock Opera] is booking from 15 April to 21 May 2023 at the Leicester Square Theatre in London.

Tony! [The Tony Blair Rock Opera] to play Leicester Square Theatre
Harry Hill and Steve Brown's musical Tony! [The Tony Blair Rock Opera] is coming to London's Leicester Square Theatre in April. The show will play the Leicester Square Theatre from 15 April to 21 May 2023. The musical will also tour from 25 May to 29 July, including Blair's former constituency of Sedgefield. The news comes following the show's good reviews and sold-out run at the Park Theatre this summer. The musical tells the story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades, and includes characters based on Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Osama bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein and Gordon Brown. Billed as Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show, the completely unofficial and unendorsed new show is directed by Peter Rowe, with set and costume design by Libby Watson, lighting design by Mark Dymock and choreography by Francesca Jaynes. Harry Hill and Steve Brown said in a press statement: “After the great response from audiences on its launch this summer, we're thrilled that TONY! is going on the road in 2023. It’s a show for Tony Lovers and Haters everywhere - and everyone in between - don’t expect a history lesson - in our world Tony's born singing and dancing, Saddam Hussein is played as Groucho Marx and Gordon Brown occasionally turns into the Incredible Hulk - let’s just say all the facts are there… but not necessarily as they occurred! Tony hasn't yet replied to our invite to see the show, but we do hope he'll pop along to his old stomping ground of Sedgefield to give his verdict when we open there at the Parish Hall. Tony? If you’re reading this we’ve put a couple of tickets in your name on the door.” More about Tony! [The Tony Blair Rock Opera] at the Leicester Square Theatre in London
