Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Director And Producer Rob Bettinson Interview ~ Buddy / 125th Street Musicals…
Rob is one of the West Ends top producers! He’s the man behind Buddy and 125th Street.
Alex went to meet him in London’s West End at ‘125th Street’ home, The Shaftsbury Theatre…..
125th Street , a new musical from Rob Bettinson and Alan Janes, the creaters of ‘Buddy’, is confirmed for The Shaftesbury Theatre opening 17th Sep 02, following previews from 30th Aug 02 and booking to 4th Jan 03 (Booking is now open!!)
Rob Bettinson and Alan Janes’ long-running musical Buddy , the story of Buddy Holly , closed at the Strand Theatre on 3rd March 02, after a run of over 12 years in the West End. It won Olivier Awards for Best New Musical and another for Best Actor in a Musical in 1991.
125th Street celebrates the music of the black groups of the ’60s.
It’s 1969, there’s a man on the moon and the old-school, over-the-hill, well-past-his-sell-by-date TONY SORRENTO is about to present his BIG NIGHT OUT live on national television from the APOLLO THEATRE in Harlem, New York.
What happens over the ensuing two hours is captured in 125TH STREET, a new musical that makes electric entertainment out of the sixties’ clash of cultures, generations and ideologies.
