Musical ()

Music: Various Book: Shirlie Roden & Jon Miller

Résumé: The late Roy Orbison’s life story is told t his son Wesley by his father’s best friend, Bobbie Blackburn. His real-life story was a dramatic one: young wife killed in a motorcycle accident, infant children die in fire, fame, followed by 20 years in the Wilderness, then back on top again, only to suffer a heart attack. During his career he appeared alongside artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Dusty Springfield, Bob Dylan, Patsy Cline and the Beatles - and various cast members shared these roles, creating a gripping life-story and
some great music.

Commentaires : Larry Branson bore an uncanny resemblance to Roy Orbison and had toured the USA for several years in a tribute show. In May 1995 the cast was joined by P. J. Proby with his own 15 minute spot, and the show underwent a few changes, being re-named “The Roy Orbison Story”. The show transferred to the Whitehall Theatre in October 1995 and finally closed on March 10th 1996.
