Broadway musical Brooklyn will make its European premiere at London’s Greenwich Theatre.
The show, which ran in New York in 2004 with a cast including Eden Espinosa and Karen Olivo, will play at the Greenwich Theatre from Friday 27 September to Saturday 19 October, 2019.
Brooklyn The Musical, with a book, lyrics, and music by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, is a story within a story.
A synopsis teases:
On the outside, a band of soulful street singers and storytellers sharing a story from their lives. And their story: a young Parisian coming to America to search for fame and the Father she never knew. Her only clue, her name…. Brooklyn.
With a brilliant mix of pop, rock and soul, including the famous song, ‘Once Upon A Time’, these stories interweave to create a musical that is a touching and inspiring sidewalk-fairy tale.
The confirmed cast for Brooklyn will feature Hiba Elchikhe as Brooklyn, Emily-Mae as Paradice, Sabrina Aloueche as Faith, John Addison as Taylor, Andrew Patrick-Walker as Streetsinger and Jodie Beth Meyer as alternate Brooklyn.
Adam Haigh will direct and choreograph the London production.
Performances will be Monday – Saturday at 7.30pm with a Matinee Saturday at 2.30pm.
