ELO & Tzuke Classics Return to London Stage

#1,292: You may recall that elobeatlesforever (elobf) featured the play: "Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour" last August whilst it ran at at The National Theatre in London before heading off to Australia. You may also recall that the show featured the Jeff Lynne penned ELO songs "Mr. Blue Sky", "Long Black Road", "Sweet Talkin' Woman", "Don't Bring Me Down", "Shine A Little Love" and "Wild West Hero" as well as Judie Tzuke's iconic "For You".

The show has now returned to London at the Duke Of York's Theatre and is running until Saturday 2nd September. A long time reader of elobf  dropped Yours Truly KJS a line the other day after having been to see "Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour" last Friday with overview:

"I was taken to see ‘Our Ladies’ last night at the theatre in London. Maybe not usual fare - a story about a group of girls from Scotland. However, the eclectic music mix features a lot of ELO, everything from Don’t Bring Me Down to Long Black Road ... Songs all sung very well (and I was at Wembley the week before) with some great arrangements with a live band. I’d recommend it to any Jeff Lynne fan (although I should warn that the dialogue is very fruity)." (H)

Tickets to see "Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour" can be purchased via this link thus:

Lee Hall apparently needed a year to persuade Jeff Lynne to grant permission for his songs to be used in this production. "Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour" is based on the book "The Sopranos" by Alan Warner and is adapted by Lee Hall, with adult themes. If you do happen to go see this play, please let elobf know your thoughts on the musical element therein!

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 05-July-2017
