Directed and choreographed by Adam Haigh, the production is set to star: Hiba Elchikhe (Brooklyn), Emily-Mae (Paradice), Sabrina Aloueche (Faith) , John Addison (Taylor), Andrew Patrick-Walker (Streetsinger) and Jodie Beth Meyer (Alternate Brooklyn). The cast are set to perform together for the first time at this weekend’s West End Live.
Brooklyn The Musical is a story within a story. 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.
The musical features book, lyrics, and music by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson. It came about when Mark Schoenfeld fell on hard times and eventually became a street performer. Barri McPherson, a friend from his past, heard him singing on the street one day and invited him to live in her home. Together, the two wrote the musical Brooklyn, which premiered on Broadway in September 2004 and ran for 283 performances.
Brooklyn the Musical will play at the Greenwich Theatre from the 27th September until the 19th October.
