Casting Set for SING STREET’s Boston Run
We Just Can’t Get Enough! Sing Street is about to open at the Huntington’s Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA in Boston next month and we finally have the cast. Directed by Tony winner Rebecca Taichman and choreography by Tony winner Sonya Tayeh, Sing Street features a book from Enda Walsh, with music and lyrics by Gary Clark and Carney. It is set to run August 26 to October 2, 2022.
The company at the New England theatre includes Adam Bregman, Courtnee Carter, Billy Carter, Jack DiFalco, Dónal Finn, Anthony Genovesi, Michael Lepore, Diego Lucano, Elijah Lyons, Alexa Xioufaridou Moster, Anne L. Nathan, Gian Perez, Dee Roscioli, Armand Schultz, Ben Wang, and Gable Kinsman, Ale Philippides, and Virginia Vogel as understudies.
The story is set in Dublin, 1982. Everyone is out of work. Thousands are seeking bluer skies across the Irish Sea. Eighteen-year-old Conor and his schoolmates find an escape from their troubles by forming a band to impress Raphina, a mysterious girl who catches Conor’s eye. With an original score that embraces the sounds of the ‘80s, Sing Street celebrates the joy of first love and the power of music.
The production premiered at New York Theatre Workshop in 2019 before moving uptown to the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway where it was set to begin performances in March of 2020 but was canceled due to the pandemic.
The production features scenic design by seven-time Tony Award winner Bob Crowley, costume design by Crowley and Lisa Zinni, lighting design by seven-time Tony Award winner Natasha Katz, sound design by Tony and Grammy Award winner & Olivier Award nominee Peter Hylenski, video design by Luke Halls and Brad Peterson, and hair and makeup design by Tommy Kurzman.
