Steve Steinman in his new show, which visits Newark next month

The performer behind hit shows Vampire’s Rock and The Meatloaf Story will return to his home town with his latest production, Iconic, at Newark’s Palace Theatre next month.

Steve Steinman has been entertaining audiences for more than two decades with his high-energy, rock-inspired shows — and his latest promises more of the same.

Iconic is described as being where film and fun collide, featuring popular songs from the soundtracks of some of the coolest and iconic movies of all time.

Catwoman, The Joker and James Bond could all feature.

It has been written and directed by Steinman, who is based in Newark. He is also the star of the show.

Set in the future where movie theatres have all but disappeared, a single magical cinema still stands with one lonely occupant, an usher called Benson.

Benson attempts to entice viewers to attend the final screening of the evening as a cast of amazing singers, dancers and musicians perform their way through a midnight medley of iconic soundtracks, reawakening musical memories of the most recognisable songs of all time.

It includes live performances of tracks from Queen, AC/DC, Tina Turner, Prince, Aerosmith, Brian Adams and Bon Jovi to name but a few alongside humour, spectacular dance routines, special effects and movie projection.

Iconic is at the Palace Theatre on Saturday, May 13, at 7.30pm.
