Something About Simon

A new show celebrating the life and musical talent of legendary American singer songwriter Paul Simon is heading to South Cheshire next month before its run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

“Something About Simon” comes to Crewe Lyceum for one night only on Saturday June 1, the performance starts at 7.30pm.

Paul Simon is a name known to audiences all over the world, amid his phenomenal career that has spanned more than seven decades.

The new show is shining the spotlight on the illustrious career of a music icon.

Something About Simon premiered in Liverpool, where it enjoyed a successful two-night pilot run at the Epstein Theatre in Autumn 2018.

Initially promoted as one performance, a second date was added due to popular demand.

The show received 5-star reviews – and now producers are taking this new revised version of the show across the region.

The show has successfully secured a place at the prestigious Assembly Rooms throughout August at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Paul Simon began his career as one half of globally successful duo Simon and Garfunkel.

He went on to enjoy an incredible solo career, which included 13 multi-million selling albums and 16 Grammy Awards, among countless other awards and accolades.

Now Liverpool singer songwriter Gary Edward Jones takes to the stage to tell the unique story of one of his idols, combining visuals, stage design, storytelling and, of course, that iconic music and incredible songs.

A natural storyteller, Gary weaves together songs and stories that cross the Atlantic, from New Jersey to the North West of England.

He traces the sometimes-poignant moments in Paul Simon’s life and career, that occasionally mirror his own.

Music highlights include classic ballads including The Sound of Silence, America and Kathy’s Song, to the more upbeat Me And Julio, 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover and Wristband.

Gary said: “We thoroughly enjoyed the creative process for Something About Simon, taking the show from paper to rehearsals to stage.

“We were completely overwhelmed by the audience response, and now we cannot wait for the next phase in the show’s development – next stop Crewe Lyceum in Spring.”

Something About Simon is brought to the Crewe theatre by producers Bill Elms, Jon Fellowes and Gary Edward Jones for Something About Productions with artistic advisor being Gareth Tudor Price.

Producer Bill Elms added: “It was always our intention to take Something About Simon across the region.

“Feedback from the pilot run was incredible an inspiring, and it made us even more determined to take the story on the road, where it belongs. Watch this space for more announcements, we have more exciting news in the pipeline.”
