Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated G
London Stage Version
A popular pint-sized, pin-striped classic leaps off the silver screen
and onto the stage in BUGSY MALONE, a
tongue-in-cheek tribute to the gangster films of the 1920s.
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a preteen Scott Baio and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The
Muppet Movie, BUGSY MALONE is good, clean, comedic fun!
Two gangs, comprised completely of children, in a fictitious city,
comprised completely of children, are in a 1920's rivalry of Capone-ian
Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since getting their hands on
the "splurge" gun (a weapon that shoots whip cream). Now Fat Sam and his
buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is
thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight, when he becomes the
last chance Fat
Sam's gang has of surviving. All busy really wants to do is spend
time with his new love Blousey; but that just isn't in the cards for our
BUGSY MALONE is a masterclass in musical comedy. The libretto tosses
the reader into uproarious laughter without even being staged. Imagine
it is when it's brought to life! Not to mention, BUGSY MALONE is a
fantastic choice for school groups and programs with a large talent pool
BUGSY MALONE is only available to license in the United States and Canada.
