“Sing Street” will transfer to Broadway this spring following its run at New York Theatre Workshop.
Based on the 2016 film by John Carney, filmmaker of “Once,” the musical features a book by Enda Walsh, book writer of the musical “Once,” and a score by Carney and Gary Clark. It is directed by Rebecca Taichman, who returns to Broadway after helming “Indecent” and “Time and the Conways,” and choreographed by Sonya Tayeh (Moulin Rouge!).
“Sing Street” will play the Lyceum Theatre beginning March 26. Opening night is scheduled for April 19.
Set in 1982 Dublin, the musical follows sixteen-year-old Conor as he forms a school band to impress a girl. The show is currently playing New York Theatre Workshop, where it runs until Jan. 26.
The cast from New York Theatre Workshop will move to Broadway, including Brenock O’Connor, known for his role as Olly on “Game of Thrones,” making his Broadway debut as Conor. He stars opposite Zara Devlin, as Raphina, also in her Broadway debut.
The cast includes Max Bartos, Brendan C. Callahan, Billy Carter, Zara Devlin, Jakeim Hart, Martin Moran, Anne L. Nathan, Johnny Newcomb, Brenock O’Connor, Gian Perez, Sam Poon, Skyler Volpe and Amy Warren. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The musical is produced on Broadway by Barbara Broccoli, who was the lead producer on “Once,” Brian Carmody, Patrick Milling Smith, Michael Wilson, Orin Wolf and Frederick Zollo. Executive Producers are Patrick Daly and Alecia Parker.
“Sing Street” features scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, sound design by Darron L. West and Charles Coes and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Martin Lowe.
