My Very Own British Invasion, the world premiere musical from Paper Mill Playhouse, began performances January 31 and is scheduled to continue its run through March 3. The production is directed by Tony winner Jerry Mitchell and features a book by Tony-winning writer Rick Elice.
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 the 1960s 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. Hal Luftig, Craig Haffner, and Rodney Rigby produce the premiere engagement in association with Paper Mill.
