'Jackie -The Musical'
No, sadly, not a musical about Jackie Onassis which is what I thought I was going to read about.
Instead, its a new juke box musical (we need no introduction to those in the UK) that is based around the girls magazine that sold millions weekly in the 1970s.
Audience interaction is to include many features that made the magazine famous in its time and include-
*PhotoLove Story Of The Week.
*Are You A Donny or David Girl.
*How To Make a Poncho!
*Make Your Own Eyeshadow (Hold SADM2 back on this one!)
*Are Love Bites Dangerous? (Hold back Scripps and Alterego back here)
Plus lots of dance, boys, zits, dance, boys and more zits and lots of 70s music!
The production premiers at the Churchil in Bromley for 2 weeks beginning Sep10th before an extensive 9 month UK tour.
Bell bottom times again me thinks!

Will the audience be shown how to knit a bobble hat and 'customise' their clothes?

Seriously we're getting juke box musicals based on random crap compilation albums? Will there be a music to do housework by the musical? Now thats what I call a musical?

Oh my Lord, I have just creamed my jeans! The script can be a series of Cathy & Claire traumas! And the songs they could use... I'm thinking Osmonds, Rollers, Slik, T-Rex, Abba, Bowie, David Soul, David Cassidy, Broherhood of Man, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Elton John, New Seekers, Lynsey de Paul, Hot Chocolate...

Oh my Lord, no wonder this show has my name on it (literally).

The concept sounds almost excatly the same as 'Shout' but 70's instead of 60's, could be a sequel. Might be inclined to catch it though, being a child of the 70's with an older sister Jackie really takes me back to my days of sitting in her bedroom staring at all the posters on her walls and ceiling, listening to records with her while she did her make up and crimped her hair. Damn! no wonder i'm a gayer, lol.

Oh man! Can't say I'm surprised, but oh man! I'd have loved this... it was one step closer to the Bay City Rollers musical of my dreams.

Step away from the razor LP.
There will be a Bay City Roller musical for you one day- we just pray it aint any day soon!

-'Producers of 'Jackie the Musical' have been forced to abandon plans for an autumn tour of the show after failing to attract necessary investment.
The jukebox musical inspired by seventies teen magazine Jackie and featuring pop music from the decade including the Jackson 5, David Essex and David Cassidy, was due to tour the UK from September, travelling through venues such as Bromley, Cardiff, and Northampton.
However, producers Mark Goucher Ltd - the company behind the likes of 'Footloose', 'Fame' and the 'Vagina Monologues' - has announced that it will postpone the production.
James Woods, managing director of Mark Goucher Ltd said 'œWe were due to do an autumn tour, with a view to possibly bringing it to the West End, but it has proved extremely difficult to raise money from investors in this current climate. 'It has got nothing to do with the show, I think we have got a wonderful show, and when the economic climate improves we will have a wonderful show on stage. We definitely intend to put it on, but it will be in 2010 now. It is becoming increasingly difficult to get investors involved simply because people are battening down the hatches, and are having to prioritise where they make investments'-.

Simple denim can be made to look stage ready with Bedazzler (is that what that thing that allowed you to add beading to your denim jeans and jacket?).
