The Band is a unique experience like no other show I have seen. It is a mix of emotions from beginning to end, stirring up personal memories for everyone lucky enough to be in the audience.
Surprisingly The Band – the new musical by Tim Firth interwoven with a plethora of Take That hits – is not a story of how The Band rose to fame, and their ups and downs. Instead the tale is from their fans’ perspective and shows how, despite what life throws at them, they stay lifelong loyal fans.
Whether you’re an avid fan of Take That, or you just know a few of the hit songs, get yourself along to The Band for a show full of friendship, laughs, emotion and nostalgia.
I loved every wonderful, heart-stopping, minute of this terrific show. Could It Be Magic? You betcha.
It has been reported that Tim Firth’s Take That-inspired musical The Band, co-produced by Take That, will transfer to Theatre Royal Haymarket from 30 November 2018.
The authentic era staging, from a huge Teletext screen showing the Top 40 with Take That’s ‘Pray’ topping the chart, down to references of Smash Hits and Top of the Pops, catapult you back to your teenage bedroom.
