refunds from point of purchase - "Quite simply the most all round entertaining show I have had the pleasure to see... The libretto is Cole Porter quality." Fringe Review
Come and experience Simon Indelicate's 'Paradise Rocks!' LIVE in Concert, with all of the low down, dirty Rock n' Roll, but none of the sets...
This summer, 17th August, at The Lexington, for one night only.
The show reimagines John Milton’s seventeenth century epic account of the fall of Man - Paradise Lost - as a swinging, spectacular, Elvis-In-Hawaii musical from the turn of the 1960s.
Taking cues from William Blake’s assessment that Milton was ‘of the Devil’s party without knowing it’, the show tells the story of Danny Morningstar, a rebellious rock-n-roller, who finds himself at Hawaii’s Club Eden resort where Adam - the wealthy heir to Eden’s proprietor - is summering with his blushing fiancée, Eve. Can she resist the power of Rock’n’Roll, and the call of temptation in the tropical climes of protestant America’s balmiest retreat?
[CW: Content Warning] This show is set in 1960's white America and as such portrays the historical racism, misogyny, antisemitism, homophobia and colonial attitudes of the time.
The Lexington is an early Victorian building and as such is not easily accessible for anyone with limited mobility. While the main bar is on the ground floor and accessible without steps the music venue is up a flight of stairs. We’re happy to help with access where possible; for any further information please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Lexington is an 18+ venue - please bring ID!
