Justin Williams’ set, a corner cutaway of a Brooklyn tenement is a highlight’The Stage
‘The thing that grabs your attention as you enter the auditorium at the Greenwich Theatre is Justin Williams’ amazing set for Brooklyn the Musical. The crumbling, graffiti covered brick walls of a decaying, derelict building rise up into the highest reaches of the theatre with glassless windows, an enormous plastic curtain, rubble and the detritus of a run-down squat in Brooklyn – it’s a powerful backdrop to the story that’s about to unfold.’LondonTheatre1
BROOKLYN THE MUSICAL is a story within a story. A touching ‘sidewalk fairytale’ about a band of soulful street singers who meet up to share stories from their lives. The story tonight: a young Parisian coming to America to search for fame and the father she never knew and the journey she embarks upon to find the soul of the city that bears her name.
Starring Hiba Elchikhe as Brooklyn, Emily-Mae as Paradice, Sabrina Aloueche as Faith, John Addison as Taylor, Andrew Patrick-Walker as Streetsinger and Jodie Beth Meyer as alternate Brooklyn.
