Perhaps the greatest sequel ever told, COOL RIDER, the cult musical sequel is BACK and in the West End for one week only. After the rapturous reception of this cult classic, the team are cool riding into the historic Duchess Theatre this April.
The film told the heady and daring love story of two unlikely lovers and their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending. Much like its musical prequel, the story follows the ancient High School motto: if you want the guy/girl, change your personality beyond recognition and wear overly tight leather in the finale.
The concert features the hit songs 'Who's That Guy?', 'Score Tonight', 'Cool Rider' (which will be sung precariously atop a step ladder without the aid of wires for safety), 'Girl for all Seasons' and the haunting melody of 'Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming)', and will pay homage to the films sheer brilliance (and shortcomings) with many surprises along the way.
So grab your leather jackets, book your tickets, rat that hair, hide those hickeys and head to the Duchess Theatre for this classic cult cinematic concert!
