Brand new musical inspired by Henry Fielding's novel The History of Tom Jones.
Swinging London of the 1960s and the music of Sir Tom Jones provides the backdrop to this brand-new musical, a lively adaptation of Henry Fielding’s influential 18th-century novel, The History Of Tom Jones: The Foundling.
The storyline sees Tom rocking up in London with a broken heart but nevertheless full of ambition and boasting a booming voice. He soon encounters an exciting world of dancing, mods, miniskirts and great music - but his one burning question remains unanswered: will he ever be reunited with his true love, who seems way too preoccupied with designing for Carnaby Street to contemplate taking a walk down the aisle?...
The show is choreographed by Arlene Phillips. “So many of the songs are heavy with big brass arrangements,” says Arlene. “You hear the music and it’s triumphant and rhythmical. There’s so much there to use as a choreographer! There’s also a phenomenal visual design - a real feast for the eyes - and audiences are going to absolutely love the story, too; there’s a lot of comedy in there. When people walk out of the theatre at the end of the show, they’re going to have a real spring in their step!”
