Brooklyn The Musical Cast
Brooklyn The Musical Cast

Casting is announced for the European premiere of Brooklyn the Musical – The cast will perform for the first time at West End Live on Sunday 23rd June 2019 at 3pm.

Brooklyn the Musical, with a book, lyrics, and music by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, will run at Greenwich Theatre from Friday 27 September – Saturday 19 October, 2019. Press night is Monday 30 September at 7,30pm.

With book, lyrics, and music by Mark Schoenfeld and Barri McPherson, Brooklyn the Musical is a story within a story. 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 a brilliant 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.

Hiba Elchikhe (Brooklyn) was Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin and is about to star in the premiere of FIVER at Southwark Playhouse.

Emily-Mae (Paradice) was Ulla in The Producers (The Royal Exchange, Manchester).
