Tonight’s The Night, the musical comedy inspired by the songs of Rod Stewart, visits Theatre Royal Brighton from March 10-15.
“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,” says spokeswoman Rachel Knowles.
“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 Baby Jane.
“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.”
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.
One night he strikes a deal with the Devil, trading his soul for Rod’s. It seems like a good idea at the time but he’s is about to find out the hard way that you can’t find true love using another man’s moves and that devil or no devil, there’s only one Rod Stewart...
