Belfast’s greatest punk story Good Vibrations, the stage musical version of the popular movie charting the life of Belfast punk legend Terri Hooley, is back!
The Lyric Theatre’s on tour production will run at the Grand Opera House Belfast 9 - 20 May 2023 and Irish Arts Center New York in June 2023.
It’s 1970s Belfast. Terri Hooley - radical, rebel, music-lover is the owner of Good Vibrations record shop on ‘the most bombed half-mile in Europe.’ When the conflict shuts down his city, Terri and friends take sides and take up arms through the compelling voice of resistance in the city’s underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, and to bring his city back to life.
Good Vibrations was adapted for stage by Colin Carberry & Glenn Patterson, the same writing team behind the film which was nominated for Outstanding Debut at the 2014 BAFTA Film awards.
Good Vibrations’ world premiere at the Lyric Theatre in 2018 was an immediate box office and critical success. Audiences across the globe travelled to Belfast to watch the sold-out production directed by Des Kennedy (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), who will return to direct this production.
Cast will be announced later this year.
