BWW Reviews: 20TH CENTURY BOY, Wolverhampton Grand, June 30 2014BWW Reviews: 20TH CENTURY BOY, Wolverhampton Grand, June 30 2014

The production is the perfect balance between a jukebox musical and a biography detailing Marc Bolan's rise to fame until the tragic car accident that killed him in 1977. Peter Rowe's writing is superb and brings in the added element of Marc's son Rolan trying to find out about his father who died when he was only two. (more...)
