Bugsy Malone re-opened the Lyric Hammersmith in April 2015 following a multi-million pound redevelopment and the creation of the Reuben Foundation Wing. It was the UK’s first professional stage production of Bugsy Malone in over a decade.

Sean Holmes said "I'm so pleased that Bugsy Malone is returning to the Lyric. I'm delighted our audience will get a further opportunity to relish Alan Parker’s inspired creation and to be transported by the talent and energy of our young cast."

Sir Alan Parker said "I’m delighted that the Lyric are bringing back Bugsy Malone. The 2015 production was beautifully mounted by Sean Holmes and his team and a revelation to me - by far and away the best stage production of it I’ve ever seen."

Choreography is by Drew McOnie with design by Jon Bausor, musical direction by Phil Bateman, lighting by James Farncombe and sound by Ben Harrison. Orchestrations, vocal and dance arrangements are by Phil Bateman.
