BKLYN The Musical tells a tapestry of stories as rich and inspiring as the borough that inspired it. There is a girl named Brooklyn, searching for the father she never knew. There is a troupe of street performers, struggling to be heard as artists... and seen as human beings. And there is an epic battle between two divas, each striving to become The Queen Of The City. Full of unforgettable songs and fizzing with the energy of the streets, BKLYN is a musical waiting for its moment... and that moment is now.
