Inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, the show will play at the King's Theatre from February 9 to 15 next year.

The original production opened in 1989 and ran for more than 1500 performances at the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End.

The show includes such rock classics as Great Balls of Fire and Good Vibrations.
