Paper Mill Playhouse’s world premiere of My Very Own British Invasion is set to begin performances January 31, 2019. The production, directed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell, is scheduled to run through March 3.
Based on the experiences of singer-songwriter Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, My Very Own British Invasion captures London’s exploding music scene in the 1960s. The production features a book by Tony-winning writer Rick Elice with a score culled from chart-topping hits from the British bands of the era.
Jonny Amies stars as Peter, with Bryan Fenkart (Waitress) as John, Erika Olson (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) as Pamela, Kyle Taylor Parker (Kinky Boots) as Gino, Conor Ryan (Desperate Measures) as Trip, John Sanders (Groundhog Day) as Fallon, and Daniel Stewart Sherman (Kinky Boots) as The Hammer.
