Beware the Ides of March, but enjoy this screening

Have your say

On Wednesday at 7.30pm, The Sound Of Silence will fill the Kings Theatre – not because the stage is empty, but because The Simon And Garfunkel Story is in town.

Fifty years since the most successful folk-rock duo of all time recorded their first number one single The Sound of Silence, the show will be coming to Southsea as part of a national anniversary tour.

Featuring award-winning leading man Dean Elliott (Buddy The Musical) the show tells the story of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as rock ‘n’ roll duo Tom and Jerry, right through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.

Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960s photos and film footage while a full live band perform all the duo’s hits including Mrs Robinson and Bridge Over Troubled Water. Tickets: £15-£19, visit
