Close-Up: The Twiggy Musical

September - November 2023

About The Show

The story of a skinny kid from Neasden who became the most famous teenager on the planet and the ‘face of the 1960’s’ may seem like the stuff of fairy tales, but there is tragedy as well as triumph in this intimate portrayal of a true 20th century icon.

It’s the story of a young working class woman who faced snobbery and sexism in a pre-Me Too world and yet achieved her dreams without ever compromising who she was.

Author and director Ben Elton charts Twiggy’s journey through laughter and tears from the suburbs of London to the world’s fashion capitals to Hollywood and Broadway and ultimately to becoming a national treasure and Dame of the Realm. All accompanied by a fabulous score featuring the hits that have been the soundtrack to Twiggy’s life.

Grab your miniskirt and re-live the swinging ‘60s and soulful ‘70s in this joyful, uplifting and empowering world première musical!

Suggested age 12+

Trigger warnings: Gunshots, bomb sounds.

This production has been made possible through the generous support of Putrino Productions, Mary Maggio and Broadway & Beyond Theatricals.
