The Story of Bart

Lionel Bart was a songwriting genius having a career penning huge chart hits, musicals, film scores and one of the biggest musicals of all time earning what the average person earned a week every minute in the 1960s. But things went wrong, very wrong and by 1972 he was tragically declared Bankrupt.This musical show is far more than a run-through of Bart’s evergreen hits as interweaved within them are all of the juicy yarns about Bart’s crazy millionaire-to-bankrupt life.

West End Star John Barr will be taking on the role of Lionel Bart telling you his story, he will be joined by a supporting cast utilizing some of Bart’s most unforgettable hits as well as one or two songs you haven’t heard before. Is there a Happy Ending?
