FAME: NOT THE MUSICAL Receives Extended London Run Through 29 April
Following a string of sold-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and London's Southbank Centre, DAVID BADDIEL announces a four week run of dates at London's Menier Chocolate Factory, with his critically-acclaimed show Fame: Not The Musical, beginning on Tuesday 29th April 2014.
Fame: our society is obsessed with it - but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? DAVID BADDIEL does in Fame: Not The Musical. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him apart from Ben Elton, DAVID BADDIEL takes aim at himself, and examines his strange relationship with the New Lad / Token Jew / Comedy rock'n'roller / football singer-songwriter that people see him as.
DAVID BADDIEL is currently adapting his smash-hit comedy The Infidel, which he wrote and produced, into a stage musical alongside ERRAN BARON COHEN, developing Sit.com, a pilot for Channel 4 which follows a technology-addicted family's every-day life, and has created and will host a brand new format for BBC Radio 4, Don't Make Me Laugh, challenging comedians to not get a laugh on inherently funny topics, which has been commissioned for a series. BADDIEL also has scripts in development with both Bwark Productions (The Inbetweeners) and Montecito Pictures (Up in the Air) in the United States.
The show is set to run at the Menier Chocolate Factory from Tuesday 29th April- Friday 23rd May with press night Thursday 1st May (except Sundays), with an extra show matinee Saturday 17th May 3.30pm. Showtimes are Tuessay - Saturday at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be ordered online at www.menierchocolatefactory.com (£1 transaction fee per booking) or on the phone at 020 7378 1713 (£2 transaction fee per booking).
