The Times*****


It is the early 1960s, England. Alfie, with an eye for the ladies, works as a photographer and later as a chauffeur. His goal is to make love to as many beautiful women as he can with no commitment or responsibilities. But Alfie finds that life is not that simple, and he will have to take responsibility for his actions.

Daily Telegraph

Darren Day Bill Naughton's classic morality tale Alfie started life as a radio play before becoming a stage play, an Oscar-nominated 1966 movie starring Michael Caine, a 2004 film starring Jude Law and a novel. Now Alfie – as timeless as Casanova, as universal as any love story – is back again as a brand new musical.
