20th Century Boy, the musical inspired by the life of Marc Bolan, explodes onto the Belgrade’s Main Stage this September, coinciding with the 35th anniversary of the iconic star’s death.

Featuring some of the greatest rock songs ever written, 20th Century Boy tells the story of the life of Marc Bolan and his band T. Rex.

Rocker, poet, electric warrior, king of glam, godfather of punk, Marc Bolan tried many styles on for size in his search to become a superstar. Before his tragic death in 1977, a few days short of his 30th Birthday, Bolan lived life at breakneck speed, creating a series of iconic images, a string of number one hits and an army of obsessive fans.

The show will be packed with all of T. Rex’s ’70s hits, including Ride a White Swan, Metal Guru, Get It On, I Love to Boogie, Children of the Revolution, and of course the title track 20th Century Boy.

This is a bigger, bolder, full scale production following on from the sell-out success of the original 20th Century Boy at the New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich.

“…if I could bottle up some of those performances, it would be one explosive cocktail!… 20th Century Boy is most definitely West End worthy.” *****

“This play has something for everyone. It’s the best sort of history lesson in 70s glamrock you could ask for. It’s funny, well written and after a tearful ending the actors took their well desired ovation.”

Coventry Observer

“Don’t be a dinosaur – get your rocks off and see this T.Rex monster!”
