Tonight’s The Night – Coming to the Theatre Royal

Tonight’s The Night, the smash hit West End musical, comes to the Theatre Royal in Brighton this coming week with opening night on Monday 10th March.

Inspired by the career of rocker Rod Stewart, Ben Elton’s production is now in it’s eleventh year of performance since opening night at the Victoria Palace Theatre in October 2003.

With a career that has span over five decades and included over two hundred million worldwide record sales, Rod is as popular as ever with recent chart-topping album ‘Time’ and bestselling book, ‘Rod – The Autobiography’.


Set in the tough town of Detroit and the classy clubs of uptown LA, Tonight’s The Night is about a shy young man called Stu, who strikes a deal with the devil and trades his soul for that of his hero’s, Rod. Ex-Sugarbabes star, Jade Ewen, plays the feisty character of Dee Dee who is recovering from having her heart broken; but with Rod’s soul, Stu finds the courage to declare his love to the girl of his dreams.

The production includes classics such as Maggie May, Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?, You Wear It Well and many more.

Tonight’s The Night is at the Theatre Royal from Monday 10th to Saturday 15th, providing eight performances for the people of Brighton in that duration.
