Tony [The Tony Blair Rock Opera]

Author(s): Book by Harry Hill, music and lyrics by Steve Brown
Company: Park Theatre
Running time: 2h 10min approx

A reckless reappraisal of the life of former Ugly Rumours front man and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades.

A tragedy of political intrigue, religion, power and romance that plays fast and loose with the facts, owing as much to Citizen Kane as it does to The Marx Brothers: Karl and Groucho.

Throw in a stellar cast of larger-than-life characters—Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Osama Bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein and Gordon Brown—and you’ve got one hell of a weapon of mass distraction.

With crowd-pleasers like "Macro Economics" and the haunting ballad "I Never Did Anything Wrong"—it’s Yes, Minister meets The Rocky Horror Show and a musical like no other.
