Let the Music Play - a Celebration of Barry White
Two times grammy winner Barry White was best known for his distinctive, smooth, smokey deep baritone bass voice. He was known to tour with a 40 piece orchestra and his 3 piece female group 'Love Unlimited' for which he conducted, composed, arranged and produced memorable hits such as "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Babe", You're The First My Last My Everything", "Never Never Gonna Give You Up", "Ecstasy", "Your Sweetness Is My Weakness", and "Love's Theme".
Worldwide Barry White earned both platinum and gold discs with combined sales of over 100 million and his live shows remained sold out throughout his career and his voice remains one of the hardest to replicate. William Hicks has performed as Barry for many years and tours with his own live orchestra and three piece female group The Supreme Dreamgirls with the intention to bring to you an experience as close to the real man and his music as possible.

The Story of Bart
Lionel Bart was a songwriting genius having a career penning huge chart hits, musicals, film scores and one of the biggest musicals of all time earning what the average person earned a week every minute in the 1960′s. But things went wrong, tragically wrong and by 1972 he was declared bankrupt. This fast moving musical show is far more than a run-through of Bart’s evergreen hits as interweaved within them are all of the juicy yarns about Bart’s crazy millionaire-to-bankrupt life.
West End Star John Barr takes on the role of Lionel Bart, getting memorably into character as he tells you his story. John is joined by a supporting cast utilizing some of Bart’s most unforgettable hits as well as one or two songs you haven’t heard before. Is there a Happy Ending?
