What's Sing Street Like?

Sing Street follows sixteen year-old Conor in 1982 during the Great Recession in Dublin, Ireland, when money, food, and lodging was scarce for poverty-stricken Dubliners. After being forced by his parents to transfer out of private school due to their impending family bankruptcy, Conor decides to start a Rock band with his friends at the new local public school.

Conor is motivated to impress his new mysterious and beautiful classmate Raphina and finds himself at odds with his family and their religious beliefs as he falls more deeply for her. He must navigate his confusing first-love and the tumultuous ups and downs of his adolescence in this charming tale about the power of music and connection.

In this show, the actors play their own instruments on stage, highlighting the energy and excitement of producing live music which Carney is famously known to capture in his film and stage productions.

Sing Street on Broadway Background

Sing Street premiered off-Broadway on November 25th, 2019 at the New York Theatre Workshop in NYC's East Village to mostly positive reviews. Sing Street is based on indie screenwriter John Carney’s 2016 film of the same name. The original film starred a cast of young Hollywood amateurs and received much critical acclaim, with many recognized critics calling their performances "charming and endearing".

Comparison to The Commitments Movie

Although the Sing Street film is often compared to 1991 movie The Commitments, there are some major differences. In The Commitments an unemployed Dublin boy puts together a soul band made up of the Irish working class. Sing Street is set in a much earlier generation and focuses on their personal growth rather than the Irish social struggle. The film version of Sing Street received a Golden Globe Award nomination for ‘Best Motion Picture’ for ‘Best Musical or Comedy Film’.

2nd Adaptation For John Carney

Sing Street is Carney’s second film adapted for the Broadway stage, with his 2007 film Once gracing the Great White Way in 2012. That show won a whopping eight Tony Awards, which included the award for ‘Best Musical’.

Songs From The Movie Made it Into the Show

The Broadway version of Sing Street uses many of the 2016 film’s most beloved songs, including the chart hit "Drive It Like You Stole It". John Carney often uses talented musicians to play the characters in his projects, which often leads to inspired musical performances, but less-than-stellar acting performances on both the screen and the stage.
