Musical on roller skates Starlight Express returns for UK tour


Starlight Express broke new ground when it hit the stage back in the 1980's. After over 7,000 performances the West End show closed in 2002, but now the cast are putting their skates back on for a UK tour.

The show combines a rock musical with actors on roller-skates, and it takes place inside the mind of a child. It was one of the longest running musicals in West End history.

Tim Muffett reports.
