In 1993 the Vaudeville Theatre in
London staged the musical comedy 'EUROVISION', written and directed
by Tim Luscombe.
It starred Anita Dobson (best known as Angie in Eastenders) and James Dreyfuss (now famous for roles in Gimme Gimme Gimme, The Thin Blue Line and Bette alongside Bette Midler on American TV).
Choreographie was by Richard Sampson and original songs by Jason Carr.
Andrew Lloyd-Webber presented a Kevin Wallace production.
is precisely nothing on the plot and story of the play in the program,

and Gary, a priest, Katia Europa, Spanish Dancers, Greek backing singers,
a wigmaster, Macedonia and Finland and others. (Macedonia in 1993! Well
Then in 1995 there was another play, not a musical this time, called BOOM-BANG-A-BANG, written by Jonathan Harvey, who also wrote Beautiful Thing (which was later made into a rather successful film).

'EUROVISION - THE PLAY' remains blank.
If programs exist and you can send me scan, please don't be shy and email me.
