Bugsy Malone

The Lyric Hammersmith’s critically acclaimed sell-out production of Sir Alan Parker’s Bugsy Malone, with music and lyrics by Paul Williams and directed by Sean Holmes, returns to the Lyric for a 12 week run.

Bugsy Malone is set in Prohibition era New York with rival gangsters Fat Sam and Dandy Dan at logger heads. As custard pies fly and Dan’s destructive ‘splurge guns’ wreak havoc, Bugsy Malone, a penniless ex-boxer and all round nice guy, falls for Blousey Brown, an aspiring singer.

Will Bugsy be able to resist seductive songstress Tallulah, Fat Sam’s moll and Bugsy’s old flame, and stay out of trouble while helping Fat Sam to defend his business?
