Comedy musical Buerk! The Newsical, a fictional look back to the 80s reimagining Michael Buerk’s career at the BBC, is coming to London’s Network Theatre from 2-4 May 2013.
Here the company give us five reasons to go…
1. Overdue concept
Astonishingly, Buerk! The Newsical is the first musical to be produced about TV news legend Michael Buerk. Kenny Rogers had the idea in 1993 but his unreleased magnum opus “Mikey B & His Moral Flippin’ Maze” ultimately came to naught. Buerk! The Newsical takes us back to the 1980s when he first met the beautiful Moira Stuart and befriended feckless weatherman Ian McCaskill. We’ve even thrown in Bob Geldof for good measure.
