The best known Elvis tribute act in the UK
Opening this year’s Fringe is the only Elvis tribute act ever to have played to 25,000 in Trafalgar Square.
After the interval, the mood changes when Elvis morphs into Ricky Lopez and the Rat Pack, singing Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and just about anybody Ricky decides he likes.
Popular Barnite, Elliot Brown, returns to interview actor Phil Davis who we've seen in so many films and TV shows, from Quadrophenia (1979) to Sherlock (2010) and beyond.
Elliot said: “After the success of The Barn Theatre presents… with Alesha Dixon and Adrian Scarborough back in 2011, I was thrilled when Coral asked if I had something up my sleeve for this year's edition of the Barn Fringe. Phil Davis and I worked on a short film together alongside Martin Freeman last year and he has grown into a great friend and mentor to me since. I’ve fully briefed Phil on all of the wonders the Barn Theatre possesses and we are both equally excited about sharing stories from Phil’s extraordinary career which spans four decades. The evening will undoubtedly be inspiring and insightful and I hope we can give Phil a brilliant Barn welcome.”
Mark Cooper and Glen Moore
En route to London, and hot from the Edinburgh Fringe comedy circuit, there’ll be something a bit different when Mark Cooper and Glen Moore take the floor for some silliness in the Studio.
Tammy Wall, Coral Walton, Emrys Matthews and Daniel Ephgrave bring you, Tell Me On A Sunday
Didn’t you just love Tammy Wall’s set in the Lilies on the Land interval? Did you, like me, wish you could sit and listen to her for an hour or so? Well now we can. On Saturday and Sunday she’ll bring the Fringe to a close with Tell Me on a Sunday, a 1970’s one-act musical, penned by Don Black and Andrew Lloyd Webber and originally performed by Marti Webb. It’s directed here by Coral Walton and new Barn member Emrys Matthews (Complete Works of Shakespeare) with musical direction by Daniel Ephgrave (Bugsy Malone). It may only run for an hour, but it’s a golden hour, which includes songs like Take That Look Off Your Face and Capped Teeth and Caesar Salad. A poignant, intimate musical, perfect for the Studio and brought to you by some of the best of Barn talent.
