The Simon & Garfunkel Story announces six additional performances for 2019, all of which will be held at the Lyric Theatre. The performances are scheduled to take place once a month on Monday evenings from January to June. Confirmed dates for the additional six performances are 21 January, 25 February, 25 March, 29 April, 20 May and 24 June.
The critically acclaimed concert-style musical tells the tale of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, two of the most important musicians of our time who together formed the legendary duo, Simon & Garfunkel. Their story plays out live on stage with a full band and brass orchestra that will take you back to simpler times when such tunes as ‘The Sound of Silence’, ‘Mrs Robinson’, ‘Homeward Bound’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ dominated the airwaves. The Simon & Garfunkel Story is backed by authentic imagery of the eponymous duo, including real footage, newsreels and adverts from both the sixties and later decades.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story stars Sam O’Hanlon as Paul Simon and Charles Blyth as Art Garfunkel, both of whom have been touring with the show since 2017. Don’t miss what the critics have been calling “authentic and exciting” (The Stage), “a real treat” (The Metro) and “amazing” (BBC Radio 2).
