A sunny afternoon will be coming away to sweep away the winter blues with a new shows featuring songs by The Kinks coming to Milton Keynes Theatre.
The Olivier award winning hit musical Sunny Afternoon can be seen from Tuesday August 30 to Saturday September 3 next year.
Recipient of four awards at the 2015 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music for Ray Davies, Sunny Afternoon features some of The Kinks’ best-loved songs, including You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset and Lola.
With music, lyrics and original story by Ray Davies, a book by Joe Penhall and directed by Edward Hall, the musical tells the story of the early life of Ray Davies and the rise to stardom of The Kinks who exploded onto the ‘60s music scene with a raw energetic new sound that rocked a nation.
Set against the back-drop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative ‘50s and riotous ‘60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.
