RECOGNITION / AWARDS

Olivier, From West End

Winner! Olivier Award for Best Musical
Blast off on a routine flight and crash into the planet D'Illyria where a sci fi version of The Tempest set to rock and roll golden oldies unfolds with glee. The planet is inhabited by a sinister scientist, Dr. Prospero; his delightful daughter Miranda; Ariel, a faithful robot on roller skates; and an uncontrollable monster, the product of Prospero's Id, whose tentacles penetrate the space craft.

"A masterpiece.... Take one plot (Shakespeare's The Tempest), one B movie (Forbidden Planet) and for added flavor plunder the entire Shakespearean cannon for dialogue (the more pungent the plagiarism, the more piquant the final effect).... Your favorite blasts from the past ... ring out of the story with such unadulterated audacity that the cue lines themselves beg for mercy." - What's On

"Prepare to dance in the aisles." - Time Out

"The best rock and roll show in town.... You just have to laugh at the death defying puns ... and the way the songs are worked into the plot with perfect logic." - Daily Express

"Tacky, camp, irreverent and-- frankly enjoyable..... A cult hit." - Daily Mail

"An outbreak of fun and joy.... It is irresistible." - Jewish Chronicle

RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET first appeared at the Cambridge Theatre on September 11, 1989.
