Tony! (A Tony Blair Rock Opera)

EVENT INFORMATION

Fresh from London's Turbine Theatre, MTFestUK 2021 comes to Ipswich, bringing you the very best in new musical theatre.


A reckless reappraisal of the life of former Bad Rumours frontman and Britain’s first pop Prime Minister Tony Blair. 

The story of how one man went from peace-loving, long-haired hippy and would-be pop star to warmongering multimillionaire in just a couple of decades.        

A hilarious tragedy of political intrigue, religion, power and romance that plays fast and loose with the facts, owing as much to Citizen Kane as it does to The Marx Brothers - Karl and Groucho.         

Throw in a cast of larger-than-life characters - Cherie Blair, Princess Diana, John Prescott, Peter Mandelson, Alistair Campbell, Ossama Bin Laden, George W Bush, Saddam Hussein, Gordon Brown and of course that dodgy dossier.

All set to rockin’ tunes.


Book and Lyrics: Harry Hill and Steve Brown

Music: Steve Brown

Director: Peter Rowe
