Following huge international success, the acclaimed musical show The Simon & Garfunkel Story makes its way to the West End to play strictly limited performances. Returning to London for the first time since a phenomenal run in 2015 at the Leicester Square Theatre, the immersive production steps on to the stage of the Lyric Theatre.
Delving into the backstory of the renowned duo, the production marks the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of their formation in 1957. Starting out as Tom & Jerry, Simon & Garfunkel rocketed to fame, becoming one of the world’s most iconic folk rock groups, earning an astounding ten Grammy Awards and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story charts the band’s journey, from their humble beginnings to their worldwide success and a very bitter break up. Taking audiences on a rollercoaster ride through their highs and lows, the show culminates with a dazzling recreation of their 1981 Central Park concert.
