Return To The Forbidden Planet At The Kings Theatre

The adored & critically acclaimed Olivier Award winning rock spectacular, returned on a much anticipated 25th anniversary UK tour last night at the Kings Theatre in Southsea. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and packed with rock ‘n’ roll classics such as, Heard It Through the Grapevine, Young Girl, Good Vibrations and GLORIA with stunning special effects and a brilliant cast of actor musicians, it was a night out to remember!

The high flying show features a bevy of 1950’s and 1960’s rock and roll classics, performed on stage by the cast. The campy sci-fi setting consists of silvered space suit costumes and space ship sets concealing keyboards and drums. The show’s dialogue is largely adapted from well-known passages from Shakespeare. The whole production was filled with uproarious energy and its old songs and quirky adaptations gave a sense of total nostalgia.

The show will cast up until Saturday 18th April 2015 here in Portsmouth and it a must see!
