20th Century Boy archive20th Century Boy is a celebration of the life of Marc Bolan and his band T.Rex. Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam, godfather of punk - Marc Bolan tried many styles on for size in his search to become a superstar. Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans. This dynamic new musical looks behind the glitter and the sequins to discover what drove the "bard of Hackney" to become "bigger than the Beatles". Packed with 70's hits including Ride a White Swan, Metal Guru, Get It On, I Love To Boogie, Children of the Revolution and of course the title track 20th Century Boy!
Performers Warren Sollars, Sue Jenkins, Luke Bailey, Jade Albertson, Matthew Ashcroft, Lakesha Cammock, Andy Coxon, Llandyl Gove, Nathan Graham, Donna Hines, Christopher Hunt, Peter Manchester, Chris Milford, Katia Sartini, Steve Simmonds, Lucy Sinclair, Naomi Slights.

Joyce (21Jun14): Saw the Show in Manchester three times going to see it in Wimbledon....cant wait, great telling of Bolans life (through the eyes of his son Rolan) warts and all but with compassion, humour and a timeline of T-Rex music...A West End must!!!
Sandra Radford (14Jun14): Brillant show, thoroughly enjoyed it. Very talented cast, excellent production. Very well done to all concerned.
Mari Hunt (29May14): Saw this at Grand Opera House York yesterday. BRILLIANT!!! Not just a tribute show... fantastic re-telling of Bolan's career and relationships through the eyes of son Rolan. Superb acting, singing, musicianship, impersonation and interpretation! The staging and set should get an award! Hopefully it will get into the West End sooner rather than later! Going again on Saturday!!! :-)
