The 15-minute musical has its premiere at London's Courtyard theatre
Photos have been released offering a first look at the UK production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's 15-minute musical 21 Chump Street.
Directed by Lizzy Connolly (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) the cast will feature Tyrone Huntley (Dreamgirls, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Justin, a high school senior who falls in love with new girl Naomi Rodriguez – played by Natalie Green. Cedric Neal (Chess, Motown) will play the Narrator. They will be joined by Matthew Caputo, Shiv Rabheru and Miles Barrow.
The performance – which has musical direction by Ed Bussey and choreography by Simon Hardwick – will be followed by a 'prom' with a live band and vocals from Cedric Neal.
Miranda's mini-musical is based on an episode of radio programme This American Life, and premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2014.
Tickets are priced at £25 and are available from The Courtyard Theatre.
