A concert style theatre show celebrating the music of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel is coming to St Albans.
Has it really been 50 years since Simon and Garfunkel, the most successful folk/rock duo of all time, recorded their first number one hit single, The Sound of Silence?
Telling the story of one of the world’s best-loved musical duos, The Simon & Garfunkel Story can be seen at The Alban Arena in St Albans on Monday, June 19.
Direct from its success at the Leicester Square Theatre in London’s West End, it is a critically acclaimed concert style theatre show.
Featuring a cast of talented West End actor/musicians, The Simon and Garfunkel Story takes the audience back through the ‘Groovy’ times of the 1960s.
It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as rock ‘n‘ roll duo Tom and Jerry, through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features archive 1960s photos and film footage.
This 50th anniversary celebration also features a full live band performing all the hits, including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, The Sound of Silence and many more.
The show’s Paul Simon, Sam O’Hanlon, has a wealth of experience in major theatre shows, including the recent tour of Jackie The Musical.
Tickets cost £22.50 and the show starts at 7.30pm.
