LAUGHTER IN THE RAIN
at many locations

LET A SMILE BE YOUR UMBRELLA
By ROGER B. HARRIS
Published November 20 2009


He's not sweet sixteen any longer and his days of being a little devil may be behind him, but the songs of Neil Sedaka will be used to chart his life in the new biographical musical Laughter in the Rain. It begins a U.K. tour in the beginning of March at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley.

Other stops along the way will include Woking, Wolverhampton, Bristol, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Hull, Blackpool, Manchester, Cardiff, Milton Keynes, Bradford, and Southampton. The where and when will be announced at a later time.

The musical has a book by Philip Norman and will describe Sedaka's rise, fall and rise again in the pop world. A teen age idol from Brooklyn,with hit songs such as "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," and "Calendar Girl," to his credit,   he fell upon hard times when the Beatles devoured  America.  He moved to Britain and signed with Elton John's Rocket Records label. He climbed back to the top of the U.S. charts in '74, with "Laughter in the Rain."
