Producers Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson of Lambert Jackson Productions said: “It has been incredibly exciting, and of course extremely challenging, to create theatre and explore new ways to share our work over the last year, and we are incredibly proud of what we have produced.
“We cannot wait for audiences to see our latest offering, our most ambitious to date, it really is spectacular. We’d like to thank the licensing team, cast, creatives and crew for all their work and bravery in making this production happen. BKLYN is a show for all the dreamers out there, and we felt it was the perfect time to give people that story.”
Brooklyn The Musical, with a book, lyrics, and music by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, is a story within a story.
On the outside you have a troupe of incredibly talented street performers who are sharing a story from their lives… Then there is the story they tell – the story of a young girl who comes to the U.S. to find the father she never knew. Together these stories create a show that is both touching and inspiring – a real urban fairytale.
