Close-UP – The Twiggy Musical @ the Menier Chocolate Factory
November 8, 2023
Playing at one of our favourite quirky venues, the Menier Chocolate Factory is a wonderful performance space. Having visited twice before, I am always on the lookout for a reason to return. Close-Up – The Twiggy Musical is a great opportunity for us to do just that.
The story of a skinny kid from Neasden who became the most famous teenager on the planet and the ‘face of the 1960’s’ may seem like the stuff of fairy tales, but there is tragedy as well as triumph in this intimate portrayal of a true 20th century icon. It’s the story of a young working-class woman who faced snobbery and sexism in a pre-Me Too world and yet achieved her dreams without ever compromising who she was.
Author and director Ben Elton charts Twiggy’s journey through laughter and tears from the suburbs of London to the world’s fashion capitals to Hollywood and Broadway and ultimately to becoming a national treasure and Dame of the Realm. All accompanied by a fabulous score featuring the hits that have been the soundtrack to Twiggy’s life.
Close-Up – The Twiggy Musical, is a biographical affair about the original supermodel, who epitomised Britain in the Swinging Sixties as much as The Beatles. Grab your miniskirt and re-live the swinging ‘60s and soulful ‘70s in this joyful, uplifting and empowering world première musical!
With it being a relatively small venue, tickets are limited and on a short hold and so do let me know as soon as you can if you would like to join us.
