The Simon and Garfunkel Story


The Simon and Garfunkel Story

Music lovers should head to the Lyric Theatre this holiday season to experience something truly special through The Simon and Garfunkel Story. After impressing audiences from all over the globe, the popular stage production is returning to London’s West End for a four-month-long run. Those interested in the play should book their tickets to the show before March 30, 2020.

Get ready for an emotional ride

The Simon and Garfunkel Story forces audience members to relive the major musical contributions from the folk-rock legends, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Apart from showcasing the real-life struggle for these musicians, the stage production relies on a time-capsule of sorts to tell its story.

You can begin to appreciate the legendary journeys through newsreels, film footage and adverts from the 1960s when the duo was at their prime. Audience members can also learn more about Simon and Garfunkel’s life before their breakthrough.

The entire production relies on a biographical but concert-like approach, making it unique in style and storytelling. Watch out for the brilliant brass orchestra that is likely to blow you away during the performance. The compelling real-life story of these two talented musicians will draw you in from the get-go.

Once in a lifetime opportunity

The stage production enjoyed sold-out shows across most major venues from Seattle to Sydney. The same is expected for its current London run. Book your tickets early, failing which you may miss the opportunity to catch this splendid play.

Charles Blyth depicts Art Garfunkel, while Sam O’Hanlon portrays Paul Simon. The production could not have asked for two more talented leads, as both Blyth and O’Hanlon impress majorly in their roles. The duo belts out some of the finest Simon and Garfunkel songs during the production.

Fans can easily identify popular compositions, such as ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘Mrs Robinson’, ‘Homeward Bound’, ‘Cecilia’ and ‘The Sound of Silence’. Each of these songs dominated the charts upon their release during the 1960s.
