‘I’m six years old, about to watch Hello Dolly starring Barbra Streisand for the first time, and I’m terrified.’
In 1993 suburban Australia a young boy’s life is changed forever when he discovers the passionate romance of Hollywood musicals. So begins a decades-long, round-the-world quest to find his own kind of romance.
Directed by Jason Morell and starring Sam Harrison (Avenue Q, Les Misérables, The Wizard of Oz) as the boy and David Seadon-Young (Ghost, An American in Paris, Man of La Mancha) as all the loves of his life, this joyful, tender and honest celebration of young love, with musical direction by David Keefe and choreography by Nicky Griffiths, features songs familiar (Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerry Herman, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart) and less familiar, from the Great American Songbook.
Prologue tickets available from 14 September
