“Dazzlingly good” Bugsy Malone comes to the Theatre Royal

Bath’s Theatre Royal continues to bring hit after hit to the City and this time audiences will be transported to prohibition era New York, for musical comedy Bugsy Malone.

We find ourselves in a city full of mobsters, showgirls and dreamers.  Rival gangster bosses Fat Sam and Dandy Dan are at loggerheads. The custard pies are flying and Dandy Dan’s gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the new-fangled “splurge” gun. Now, Fat Sam and his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble!

Enter Bugsy Malone, a penniless one-time boxer and all-round nice guy, thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last resort for Fat Sam’s hapless hoodlums. 

Packed with instantly recognisable songs from Oscar-winner Paul Williams including My Name is Tallulah, You Give A Little Love and Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, BUGSY MALONE is a masterclass of musical comedy with one of the most joyously uplifting finales in musical theatre.

The critics agree, with The Guardian reporting “The audience went wild with delight” and The Mail on Sunday calling it a “An exuberant, ebullient, uplifting show”. So you will want to get your tickets booked now for this one.
