Des O'Connor to Join the West End's Dreamboats and Petticoats in October
O'Connor is perhaps best known from his work on television and such shows as the Des O'Connor Tonight specials and the ITV talk show Today with Des and Mel. He is also a recording artist, and has produced 36 albums.
The show, which has a book by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, is based around the Fifties and Sixties hits from the compilation album series of the same name. It features songs from Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers, Neil Sedaka, Eddie Cochran, Dion and Del Shannon, among others.
