Sing Street

Sing Street

Tickets are now on sale for Sing Street at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway.

The world premiere musical Sing Street, based on the 2016 indie film by John Carney, was first staged Off-Broadway as part of New York Theatre Workshop's 2019-2020 season, concluding on January 26, 2020.

The production transfers directly to Broadway, beginning previews at the Lyceum Theatre on March 26, 2020, ahead of an official opening on April 19.

Sing Street features a book by renowned Irish playwright Enda Walsh and a score by Gary Clark and John Carney (who wrote and directed the original motion picture). Broadway fans will most likely know the name John Carney as the writer and director of the 2007 indie film “Once” which went on to be adapted into a 2012 Tony Award-winning ‘Best Musical’. Similarly, Once also featured a book by Enda Walsh and also staged a pre-Broadway run at New York Theatre Workshop. However, this time Carney himself is a member of the musical’s creative team.

Fans of Once are bound to rekindle that passion with a trip down Sing Street, but as the latter is set in 1985, the score is appropriately infused with the new wave sounds of that era. Fans of David Byrne and his American Utopia Broadway engagement, therefore, might also find Sing Street right up their street.

The original company is led by Brenock O’Connor, who takes on the central role of Conor. The young British star is best known for his role as Olly on the global phenomenon that is HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and Sing Street marks his Broadway debut.

Director Rebecca Taichman burst onto the Broadway scene in 2017, having forged a stellar career Off-Broadway, and took home the Tony Award for ‘Best Direction of a Play’ with her Broadway directorial debut helming Paula Vogel’s Indecent. Sing Street marks her directorial debut for a Broadway musical.

About Sing Street:

Dublin, 1985. Everyone is out of work. Thousands are seeking bluer skies across the Irish Sea. Sixteen-year-old Conor and his schoolmates turn to music to escape troubles at home and impress a mysterious girl. With a score that embraces the new wave sounds of the era, Sing Street celebrates the thrill of first love and the power of music.

Our Sing Street Review

The moral of Sing Street, as taught by a group of moody teenagers and put-upon adults, is that music, even 1980’s pop music, can transform a boy into a man, especially when aided by the love of a pretty girl and the support of an older brother. This new musical, receiving its world premiere at New York Theatre Workshop, is a distillation of the 2016 semi-autobiographical film by John Carney... Read more
