Return to the Forbidden Planet is a musical by playwright Bob Carlton based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the 1950s science fiction film Forbidden Planet. Return to the Forbidden Planet started life with the Bubble Theatre Company as a production for open-air performances. A revised version of the musical opened, indoors, at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool in the mid-1980s.
A welcome return for a much-loved iconic musical.
