Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

The Car Man

Author(s): Matthew Bourne
Company: New Adventures

A dance-thriller based, The Car Man will be completely reimagined for the Royal Albert Hall, adding a frisson of danger as the dancers perform throughout the auditorium amid stage designs by Olivier and Tony award-winner Lez Brotherston.

Featuring an expanded company of 65 dancers and musicians, a live orchestra and new designs. The 19th Century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy garage-diner in 1960s America where a small town’s dreams are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Fuelled by heat and desire, the inhabitants are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge.
