Performances begin November 25 at New York Theatre Workshop for the world premiere of Sing Street, a musical adaptation of John Carney’s hit indie film, about first love and the power of music, of the same name.

Helmed by Tony-winning director Rebecca Taichman, the new musical features a new wave score from Carney and Gary Clark, a book by Tony winner Enda Walsh, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh.

Set in Dublin in 1982, in the midst of the recession, Sing Street follows new kid Conor and his schoolmates as they start a band to get the attention of the mysterious Raphina.
