Performing at a time of political turmoil in America, follow his legendary story of becoming one of the world’s greatest performers of the twentieth century.

On writing the musical, Leslie Bricusse said: “To have... the Olivier Award winning star of Hamilton (Giles Terera) join me in bringing you the musical life story of Sammy Davis Jr in this beautiful theatre is a rare and great privilege. Sammy was a phenomenal human being, and a blazing talent, beyond anything we had ever seen. My wife Evie and I saw Sammy perform over 300 times during the 30 years of our great friendship with him, and after every performance we would look at one another and say ‘That’s the best he’s ever been!’ Because it always was!”
