About: Muhammad Ali and Me

Ali was always full of surprises. He danced in the boxing ring, rapped at press conferences, recited poetry in TV interviews, preached Islam from the back of a Cadillac and invoked revolution in a generation.

In the spirit of Ali, Muhammad Ali and Me is a rich, ‘beautifully rendered’ (What’s On Stage) production full of wonder told through poetry, dance, boxing, African acapella singing, audience interaction and integrated British Sign Language. Ali himself makes a guest appearance through verbatim text and original fight footage, with cartoon animation, pyrotechnics, magic tricks and a superb eclectic 1970's sound track.

‘As a piece of stagecraft, an entertaining kaleidoscope of social and political history, only one description will do: this is a play that ‘floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.’ WHATS ON STAGE ★★★★

‘You couldn’t ask for more’. TIME OUT

After a sell out run in 2008, Muhammad Ali & Me makes its long awaited return and once again this powerful production is packing more than a punch.

Muhammad Ali and Me is designed for both D/deaf and hearing audiences.
