Tonight’s The Night, the smash hit musical comedy inspired by the songs of Rod Stewart, visits Theatre Royal Brighton from Monday, March 10, to Saturday, March 15.
The all-singing, all-dancing feel good show premiered in the West End in 2003 and went on to play sold out theatres across the UK.
With a book by multi award-winning writer and comedian Ben Elton (We Will Rock You), Tonight’s The Night features spectacular staging, a world class band, dazzling choreography and includes more than 20 classic Rod Stewart hits like Tonight’s the Night, Hot Legs and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy.
Rod Stewart is a two time inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, a Grammy Living Legend, and in 2007 he was bestowed the prestigious CBE.
In a career spanning five decades Rod remains as popular as ever.
Rod Stewart said: “In the past, any ideas for musicals revolving around my songs just didn’t work for me. It was only when we were approached to do Tonight’s The Night that the idea really took off.”
Ben Elton said: “Rod is a totally unique artist.
“I initially approached him about a musical because his songs are all about storytelling and I felt that a great story could grow from them.”
Set on the mean streets of Detroit and in the glamorous clubs of uptown LA, the show tells the story of Stu, a shy young man, so tongue tied that he cannot find the courage to declare his love to the girl of his dreams.
How different he is to his hero, that legendary rock n’ roll vagabond Rod Stewart.
One night our hero strikes a deal with the Devil, trading his soul for Rod’s. It seems like a good idea at the time but he is about to find out the hard way that you can’t find true love using another man’s moves.
The singer and actress Jade Ewen will play the role of Dee Dee. The show will also star Michael McKell, best known for playing Dr Nick West in Doctors.
