World Premiere - a brand new musical. A scintillating celebration of the Sixties, featuring the timeless music of Manfred Mann, The Animals, The SearchersDon't let me be misunderstood, Sweets for my sweet, Roll over Beethoven, Doo wah diddy and many more hits all performed live on stage!

This stunning new musical premiering at the Hackney Empire is a homage to London in the Swinging Sixties. Carnaby Street is set against the backdrop of London’s West End, with its famous clubs, trendy fashions and eccentric characters, in a time of hope and freedom, when the world is changing and anything seems possible. Directed by Bob Tomson (Blood Brothers, Dreamboats and Petticoats) and designed by Matthew Wright (Evita, La Cage Aux Folles), Carnaby Street tells the story of Jude, a working class boy from Liverpool, new in town and armed with nothing but his guitar and his dreams of fame and fortune. This joyous production - packed with over 30 classic hits of the time - follows the highs and lows, the passion and heartbreak, of his journey in pursuit of stardom.

All you needed was a dream... and a guitar. A musical story of a generation.
