My Very Own British Invasion

A fable of young love set against the backdrop of the exploding 1960s music scene - when England launched the little dust-up that became known as The British Invasion. Based on the experiences of Peter Noone, who was just a teenager willing to sacrifice international stardom for the sake of girl he loves, and featuring more than two dozen chart-topping hits from all the best British bands of the era. Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell choreographs and directs.
