New Musical "Sing Street" Headed To Broadway


"The theater world’s buzzing about two off-the-grid musicals that could make the leap to Broadway in the spring.

The other week I reported on “The Wrong Man,” by singer-songwriter Ross Golan, starting previews this month at MCC’s new theater in Hell’s Kitchen.

The other show to watch is “Sing Street,” from the team that created the Tony-winning musical “Once.” Based on the 2016 Irish movie, “Sing Street” tells the story of a bullied kid who tries to impress a girl by telling her he’s a songwriter and would like her to be in a video he’s shooting. When she says yes, he has to write a song, assemble a band and shoot the video. Set in Dublin in the ’80s, it’s one of those funny-but-poignant working-class stories (think “Billy Elliot”) the British and the Irish do so well."
