From the novel by Henry Fielding
Tom Jones is the bawdy, often hilarious, and sometimes moving tale of a handsome young man who can resist everything except temptation - especially of the female kind.
Born a bastard in 18th century England, Tom has to find out who his real parents are, and a way to be united with his true love, Sophia. He accomplishes both, but not without some twists and turns of fate along the way....
It was a classic comic novel by Henry Fielding, and then an Academy Award-winning movie. Now, Tom Jones is a rambunctious and bawdy new musical.
Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Tom Jones is a good natured lad with a small problem - he can't turn his back on a beautiful woman!
Happy go lucky and utterly unable to resist temptation, his passions get him thrown out of his home, into several tavern brawls (not to mention beds, hedgerows and rich ladies' houses) and into terrible trouble with his true love, Sophia!
With book and lyrics by Paul Leigh and a score by Olivier Award-winner George Stiles, TOM JONES: the Musical makes the answers to these and other questions hilariously clear.
