Following a sold out season on London’s West End and various cities across Europe, the UK production of The Simon & Garfunkel Story returns to NZ for a four centre national tour. Playing one night only in Wellington, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch from 22 – 27 July, the production was a sell-out smash hit in Auckland in 2016 and is back by popular demand.
This acclaimed production tells the fascinating tale of how two young boys from Queens, New York went on to become the world’s most successful music duo of all time. Starting from their humble beginnings as 50s Rock n Roll duo Tom & Jerry, The Simon & Garfunkel Story takes you through all the songs and stories that shaped them, the dramatic split, their individual solo careers and ending with a stunning recreation of the legendary 1981 Central Park reunion concert.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story features UK performers Gregory Clarke as Paul Simon and Joe Sterling as Art Garfunkel. Gregory Clarke is an established UK theatre performer across various productions including an original cast member of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Woman in White (Palace Theatre). Other productions have included Carnaby Street the Musical, Chess, The Witches of Eastwick and more. Gregory is also an accomplished guitarist and musician and played across various acts and productions including The Runaround Kids, The Experience, Songbird-The Music of Eva Cassidy, Hold Tight It’s 60’s Night, The Elvis Years, The Bluejays, Hot Stuff the musical and MANY more.
