Alan Parker’s world-famous 1976 movie launched the careers of Jodie Foster and Scott Baio and can now be seen as a spectacular theatrical experience on tour in this revival of the acclaimed Lyric Hammersmith Theatre production. It comes to Nottingham Theatre Royal from November 1 to 6.

Packed with instantly recognisable songs from Oscar winner Paul Williams, including My Name is Tallulah, You Give a Little Love and Fat Sam’s Grand Slam, Bugsy Malone is a joyously uplifting masterclass of musical comedy.The show is set in Prohibition-era New York, a city full of mobsters, showgirls and dreamers. Rival gangster bosses Fat Sam and Dandy Dan are at loggerheads. Enter Bugsy Malone, a penniless one-time boxer and all-round nice guym who soons finds himself wrapped up in all sorts of shenanigans and has to keep his head and things threaten to spiral out of control.
