Fifty years on from when the most successful folk and rock duo of all time recorded their first no. 1 hit single, 'The Sound of Silence', ‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story’ will be staged at the Spotlight in Hoddesdon on Sunday 9 July.
Following its West End success at the Leicester Square Theatre in London, the show is currently the biggest and most successful international touring theatre show, celebrating the lives and careers of folk and rock sensation Simon and Garfunkel.
Featuring a full cast of talented West End actor musicians, 'The Simon and Garfunkel Story' will take the audience back through the 'groovy' times of the 1960s. The show tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as rock ‘n’ roll duo 'Tom and Jerry', right through to their massive success, dramatic break-up, finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981Central Park reformation concert.
The show features 1960s photos and film footage which will be presented on a huge projection screen, whilst a full live band perform all their hits, including 'Mrs Robinson', 'Cecilia', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', 'Homeward Bound', 'Sound of Silence' and many more.
Reviewing the show, The British Theatre Guide said: “For once, you can really believe the Hype”.
With every performance previously creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed.
