KURT & SID Rumored to Set Up Shop in West End, Spring 2010
This past autumn two of this generation's brightest acting talents played two of music's most famous figures in Roy Smiles' new play KURT & SID at Trafalgar Studios in London, and it is now rumored that KURT & SID is looking for a home on the West End come Spring 2010.
Danny Dyer (whose work encompasses roles in multiple Pinter plays, TV's Skins and films such as Doghouse, Straightheads, The Football Factory and Adulthood) played Sex Pistol's bassist Sid Vicious. Opposite him, Shaun Evans (Teachers and recently seen in Sky1's The Take) made his West End stage debut as Nirvana's lead singer Kurt Cobain.
Weary of being hailed as ‘Grunge King', Kurt is about to pull the trigger of the gun in his hand and join the leagues of rock star deaths down the ages. Then, without invitation, he finds he has company...curious company in the form of a shadowy figure purporting to be the Sex Pistol's Sid Vicious, Kurt's hero.
What's on Stage reports that it is not likely the two leads will make the transfer, but rumors of a new "all star cast" abound. Read the full report from What's on Stage here.
