WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE MUSIC OF SING STREET
"IRRESISTIBLE EVEN TO THEATERGOERS WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE
ALLERGIC TO THE STICKY, ROMANTIC EAR CANDY OF THE MTV AGE."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
"RENDERS THE NOSTALGIA-PRONE WEAK. THE AUDIENCE
INSTANTLY STARTS GROOVING ALONG, RELIEVED TO FEEL
THAT SYNTHPOP LEASH YANKING AT OUR SPIRITS AGAIN."
"INFECTIOUS! IT'S A JOY JUST TO BE SWEPT ALONG THAT BEAUTIFUL SEA. SING STREET IS DRIVEN BY THE POWER OF ITS SONGS."
Dublin, 1982. Everyone is out of work. Thousands are seeking bluer skies across the Irish Sea. Conor and his schoolmates find an escape from their troubles by forming a band to impress a mysterious girl. With an original score that embraces the sounds of the '80s, SING STREET celebrates the thrill of rebellion, the joy of first love and the power of music.
