Metro Street to tour in 2011

Original Australian musical Metro Street is set to tour Australia in 2011, following its successful mainstage premiere in Adelaide last year.

It is understood planning is underway for a tour next year that would take in Sydney and Melbourne and possibly other Australian cities.

It is expected that regional centres would be included in the tour.

“The response from audiences to Metro Street in both Adelaide and Korea has been overwhelmingly positive and we’re now looking forward to giving audiences all around Australia the chance to see this funny and moving Australian work,” said Arts Asia Pacific Managing Director, Torben Brookman.

Press notes for Matthew Robinson’s Metro Streetread: “Sometimes life is worth making a song and dance about. At the best and worst of times families are touching, challenging and ultimately hilarious. If reality television has shown us anything it’s that one group of people should never be locked in one house for too long without escaping to breathe, at least between commercial breaks. Metro Street exposes the reality of three generations bound by blood and stretched by a modern world that insists on changing daily. With a fresh, contemporary score and instantly recognisable characters, Metro Street will have you feeling at home within moments and leave you heading towards your own home revitalised and deeply moved. They could be your family, your friends or your neighbours.”

Details of the 2011 tour are expected to be announced later this year.
