The British musical will begin performances at the Kiln Theatre on the 9th November.

A new video of ‘If I Believed’, one of the songs from the upcoming production of the new musical, with performances starting at the Kiln Theatre from tomorrow.

Dougal is a naive, impossibly upbeat Brit, flying to New York for his Dad’s second wedding. The Dad he’s never known.

Waiting for him at the airport is Robin, the sister of the bride. She’s a native New Yorker, she’s late for work, and she doesn’t have time to stop and see the sights.

Instant attraction? Definitely not.

But with an extravagant wedding approaching and the city at their feet…anything could happen.
