Prior to the West End opening, it will play at Dublin's Gaiety Theatre first, from Feb. 22-March 9.
Directed by John Tiffany, it has a book by award-winning Irish playwright and screenwriter Enda Walsh, music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney, scenic and costume designs by Bob Crowley, lighting by Natasha Katz, sound by Clive Goodwin, musical supervision and orchestrations by Martin Lowe and movement by Steven Hoggett.
Casting will be announced shortly.
Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, it revolves around an Irish busker and a young Czech mother who meet through a shared love of music. Their songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected.
