Lyric Hammersmith’s critically acclaimed sell-out production of Bugsy Malone will return to the Lyric for Summer 2016.
Sir Alan Parker’s Bugsy Malone, with music and lyrics by Paul Williams and directed by Sean Holmes, will return to the Lyric for a 12 week run, opening on 24 June 2016, with previews from 11 June 2016.
Holmes’s high-octane production of Alan Parker’s Bugsy Malone was the first professional UK production of the show in over a decade when it re-opened the recently refurbished Lyric Hammersmith earlier this year.
Sir Alan Parker said ‘I’m delighted that the Lyric are bringing back Bugsy Malone. The 2015 production was beautifully mounted by Sean Holmes and his team and a revelation to me – by far and away the best stage production of it I’ve ever seen.’
Casting is yet to be announced, however it is likely to be made up of child and young adult actors, as in the 2015 production.
