The Simon and Garfunkel Story is not a jukebox musical per se – it’s not ‘Sunny Afternoon’ or ‘Mamma Mia!’ by any means. The show itself is a cabaret style concert; packed full of highlights from the duos songbook. It is striking that the evening is quite static. One can fully appreciate that Simon and Garfunkel were hardly dancing superstars and their art was very much in the music and lyrics they performed, however for a West End stage this was a notably still show.
Addressing the audience directly, Elliott and Tudor offer a fairly laidback commentary on Simon and Garfunkel's career, from their earliest days as kid rock'n'rollers in the late 1950s to the reunion gig in Central Park in 1981. Ultimately these projected images provide a more eloquent accompaniment to the music, featuring iconic episodes of pertinent American history interspersed with snaps of the boys taken through the years.
