I’d been looking forward to The Simon & Garfunkel Story thinking how much this was the music of my coming of age years – but it’s funny what tricks your memory plays.
What makes the evening even better is the story behind the songs – the anecdotes and details about Simon and Garfunkel’s careers as a duo and as solo artists.
There are, of course, a range of new shows to choose from – both in and out of London. Pigspurt’s Daughter (by Ken Campbell’s daughter Daisy) plays at Hampstead’s Downstairs venue, Honey will be performed at The Cockpit, Boxman and Where the Hell is Bernard? both run at the Blue Elephant Theatre.
It would be almost impossible not to enjoy a show based on the wonderful music of Simon and Garfunkel. The melodic joy they brought the world is simply wonderful and so I was delighted to attend The Simon and Garfunkel Story to see for myself how this was going to translate into a West End show.
