Another week, another show closes, and this time it’s Dreamboats & Petticoats! Although it was booked to run until late November, it is now due to close on the 4th August.
The jukebox musical featured fantastic hits from the 50s and 60s and really captures the rock ‘n’ roll era! The musical was set between the years 1957 – 1963, and has been running in the West End since September 2009.
In it’s short 3 year run, Dreamboats & Petticoats is thought to have been seen by over 1 million people in London alone! The musical numbers were so popular, that the CD soundtrack spent 4 weeks at number 1 of the compilation charts.
The show has had two homes, a short run at the Savoy Theatre, and most recently at The Playhouse Theatre. As well as a 3 year run in the West End, the show has also had 3 UK tours, which have brought all the fun to an even wider audience.
The show opened to mixed reviews, most stating that the show was geared towards an older audience. The Daily Mail fairly described it as, ”innocent fun – particularly for those who lived through the songs first time round.”
If you’ve always wanted to go, but never got round to it, now is the time to catch it!
Tickets will be selling up to the 4th August, so be super quick to catch the last few performances of Dreamboats & Petticoats!
