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.
