New British musical Rehab The Musical will play a limited season at The Playground Theatre from 1st September 2022 and will star Keith Allen (‘The Comic Strip Presents…’, ‘The Homecoming’), Jonny Labey (BBC ‘EastEnders’, ‘Strictly Ballroom’), Gloria Onitiri (Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Cinderella’, ‘The Bodyguard’) and John Barr (‘Batboy The Musical’, ‘Les Miserables’). Rehab The Musical is a rock-bottom-to-redemption journey of the soul filled with thumpingly memorable songs.
It’s 1999 and jaded 26-year-old pop star, Kid Pop, finds himself in court, after being caught red handed in a drug fuelled tabloid sting. An understanding judge gives Kid the choice between jail time or six weeks in a rehabilitation centre. It seems a no-brainer: rehab will be a holiday. But how could Kid have got it so wrong?
Rehab The Musical has music & lyrics by Grant Black and Murray Lachlan Young, a book by Elliot Davis, and is directed and choreographed by Gary Lloyd (‘Thriller Live’ – 12 years in the West End, ‘Heathers’).
Rehab The Musical will sweep audiences up on an emotional journey of the soaring highs and tragic lows of the ‘guests’ of the Glade Rehab Centre.
