20th Century Boy tells the story of Bolan and his band T.Rex, exposing some of the myths and taking the audience on a tearful yet feel-good journey.

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.

Following critical acclaim for his portrayal in the show’s highly successful runs in 2011 and 2012, Olivier Award winning star George Maguire returns to lead the cast.

The producers said: “George has been involved with the show from the early workshop stages and has an incredibly close connection with the material.”
