Never Forget – the Musical is a jukebox stage musical that uses the music of top UK boyband Take That to tell the story of members of a fictional tribute band to the famous boys. Using Take That’s chart-topping anthem ‘Never Forget’ as the title to the musical, the show uses the popular songs written by lead singer of the group, Gary Barlow, as well as other music and lyrics written by artists such as Barry Manilow, as the band covered these songs in their early days.
Originally embarking on a short UK tour, Never Forget the Musical premiered at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff in July 2007. The show received great critical acclaim and was nominated for a What’s On Stage Theatregoers Choice Award for Best Touring Production in 2008. After its Cardiff run, the show again went on a short tour before beginning previews at the Savoy Theatre in London on 7th May 2008. With a book written by Guy Jones and Ed Curtis, and the show also being directed by Curtis, the show received fair reviews and closed at the Savoy on 15th November 2008.
Never Forget the Musical was loved by Take That fans and the show continued to tour after closing at the Savoy Theatre. Its press night production at the Manchester Opera House was filmed and is available on DVD for those wishing to ‘Never Forget’ the show!
