NEWS: The Turbine Theatre announces UK premiere of new musical High Fidelity
The Turbine Theatre has announced its second show of the inaugural season will be the UK premiere of the irresistible new musical comedy High Fidelity, based on the acclaimed British novel by Nick Hornby. Directed and choreographed by Tom Jackson Greaves, the first musical to open at the new Battersea Power Station based theatre, runs from 21 October – 7 December.
While the acclaimed film adaptation of High Fidelity relocated Hornby’s story to Chicago, this new production of the musical will set it back home in London, with an adapted book by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), music by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Amanda Green (Bring It On).
Rob is the thirty-something owner of a London record shop who’s mastered the art of finding rare vinyl and losing girlfriends. Laura just dumped him, and Rob is totally moving on. Hopefully. Well, there’s a chance it could still work out!
Could Laura actually be “the one?” Might this turn out to be one of the Top 5 Most Romantic Comebacks Ever?!
High Fidelity has designs by David Shields, sound by Dan Samson, lighting by Andrew Exeter, and casting by Will Burton at CDG. Helen Sibberter will be the Associate Director. Full casting will be announced in due course.
