The makers of blockbuster musical Buddy are aiming to be back in the West End by the end of year. Not with the Holly tribute but rather with an all-new musical. Rob Bettinson and Alan Janes' new show, titled 125th Street, takes place during one hot summer's night in 1969 at New York City's Apollo Theatre on said street. In the 1950s and 60s, the Apollo was a magnet for some of the biggest names in music as well as eager young hopefuls keen to display their talents in the weekly 'search for a star' spot. That spot will be faithfully recreated in 125th Street. Show producers are touring the country this May and June auditioning local performers keen to perform in the West End musical for one week each. Could a star be born? Perhaps the next Pop Idol? A venue has not yet been confirmed though 125th Street is expected to open in October 2002.
