Casting has been announced for the European premiere of Brooklyn the musical at Greenwich Theatre in September 2019.
Brooklyn the musical is a story within a story with book, lyrics and music by Barri McPherson and Mark Schoenfeld. On the outside, a band of soulful street singers and storytellers sharing a story from their lives. And their story: a young Parisian coming to America to search for fame and the Father she never knew. Her only clue, her name… Brooklyn. With its mix of pop, rock and soul, including the famous song, ‘Once Upon A Time’, these stories interweave to create a musical that is a touching and inspiring sidewalk-fairy tale.
