From the producer of The Last Five Years, Cruise, Hair, Rags and The Addams Family, comes the brand-new musical sensation, Broken Wings.
Based on bestselling novelist Kahlil Gibran’s (The Prophet) poetic book, and with a beautiful original score from Middle Eastern duo
Nadim Naaman and Dana Al Fardan, this moving production is set to be the theatrical event of 2022.
New York City, 1923. Through exquisite poetry and enchanting music, an ageing Gibran narrates our tale, transporting us back two decades and across continents, to turn-of-the-century Beirut. Gibran meets Selma; their connection is instant and their love affair, fated. However, their journey to happiness is soon thrown off course, as the pair face obstacles that shake the delicate foundation of their partnership. Will their love win out or will their dream of a life together be torn apart?
Performed uniquely in-the-round, Broken Wings takes us on an unmissable musical voyage, exploring issues of gender equality, immigration, the freedom to love who we love, and what ‘home’ really means to us. Over a century later, and the themes and debates raised in Gibran’s story, remain increasingly relevant today.
Get swept away in the magic of this epic, poignant, and romantic musical and book now!
