News   Love Me Tender, a Re-Titled Version of Broadway's All Shook Up, To Receive U.K. Premiere
Love Me Tender a re-titled version of the 2005 Broadway musical All Shook Up that was inspired by and features the music of Elvis Presley, is to receive its British premiere in a production being mounted for a U.K. tour that will begin performances June 5 at Manchester's Opera House.

The musical will then tour to Bristol, London's New Wimbledon Theatre, Stoke on Trent, Oxford, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Liverpool, York, Birmingham, Bromley, Woking and Cardiff.

Written by Joe DiPietro, the Tony-winning book writer and co-lyricist of Memphis which is currently playing in the West End, Love Me Tender draws its story from William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Set in a small town in 1950s America, the plot follows a guitar-playing, hip-swivelling stranger who rides his motorbike into town. Is he The Devil in Disguise or a Hound Dog in his Blue Suede Shoes? The townsfolk are about to be All Shook Up and could be headed for Heartbreak Hotel, but for Natalie, the love-struck, tomboy mechanic, it really is Now or Never.

It will be directed and choreographed by Karen Bruce, with designs by Morgan Large, lighting by James Whiteside, costumes by Vicky Gill and casting by James Orange. It is produced by Adam Spiegel Productions, Robert G. Bartner and the Ambassador Theatre Group.

Casting is still to be announced.
