New musical Carnaby Street arrives at the Manchester Opera House next week. We caught up with producer Carl Leighton-Pope and asked for five reasons why you should go along. 1. It's a feel good musical… that will transport you back to the 60's, arguably the best era in the 20th century.2. Fashion & MusicCarnaby Street is full of colour, both fashion and music give you the look and feel of the most happening street in swinging London.3. Great StoryTells you a tale of a singer/songwriter who hitchhikes to London from Liverpool seeking fortune and fame, both of which he finds, but at what price?4. Director…Bob Tomson known for Dreamboats & Petticoats and Blood BrothersHere he shows his true brilliance and vision bringing the street, the time and the players to life right in front of your eyes.5. Great ResultThe result is an evening packed with great songs from the period, playing, singing and dancing of the very highest standard performed by a young cast. In the words of Petula Clarke, "forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go" to your local theatre and enjoy Carnaby Street The Musical!Carnaby Street is at the Manchester Opera House from 20 - 25 May.
