An online revival of BKLYN - The Musical will premiere next month, it has been announced. Filmed at London’s Ugly Duck space, BKLYN will be available to stream from 22 March - 4 April, with a plethora of West End stars taking part.
BKLYN tells the stories of multiple street performers, whose lives intersect on the streets of New York City. Sharing tales with each other, they discover an inner story of a young girl in the USA finding the father she never knew. First performed on Broadway in 2004, BKLYN was last seen in London at the Greenwich Theatre in 2019.
The BKLYN cast for this online production includes Emma Kingston as Brooklyn, who has previously starred in Evita and In The Heights. Jamie Muscato plays Taylor, last in Heathers at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, with Waitress’ Marisha Wallace as Paradice. Sejal Keshwala will play Faith, with Newtion Matthews as the Street Singer.
BKLYN is produced by Lambert Jackson Productions, who’ve previously worked on I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change and First Date. Dean Johnson directs the musical, with musical direction by Leon Munby.
Speaking about the musical, Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson today said: “It has been incredibly exciting, and of course extremely challenging, to create theatre and explore new ways to share our work over the last year, and we are incredibly proud of what we have produced. We cannot wait for audiences to see our latest offering, our most ambitious to date, it really is spectacular... BKLYN is a show for all the dreamers out there, and we felt it was the perfect time to give people that story.”
During the online run, there will be 10 scheduled streamed performances, before on-demand viewing from 29 March.
