Philip Murray Warson (Million Dollar Quartet, One Man Two Guvnors) is to join The Simon & Garfunkel Story as it extends its acclaimed West End run. Starring as Paul Simon alongside previously announced Charles Blyth as Art Garfunkel, The Simon & Garfunkel Story continues to take audiences through the incredible highs and lows of Simon & Garfunkel’s incredible career.
Having formed in 1957 as Tom & Jerry, Simon & Garfunkel went on to become the world’s most iconic folk rock group. Revealing the incredible journey shared by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, The Simon & Garfunkel Story takes audience through their meteoric rise. From their humble beginnings, right through their worldwide successes and bitter break-up, culminating with a stunning recreation of their 1981 Central Park reformation concert, audiences can re-live the moments that justified their ten Grammy Awards and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story not only tells the tale of the legendary musicians but relives their journey within a time capsule of contemporary newsreels, adverts and film footage from the 1960s and beyond.
