Why See Jukebox Hero?
The World Premiere of the Foreigner Musical
Power ballad titans Foreigner road high in the 70s and 80s with their stadium-shaking blend of flaming licks, soaring vocals and driving drums. Celebrating their 40th anniversary, the arena-rocking quintet are joining forces with Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, the writing duo behind musical films The Commitments and Across the Universe, for a brand new musical featuring 16 Foreigner classics including Cold As Ice, Waiting For A Girl Like You and of course, the musical's namesake Jukebox Hero.
With its sights set on Broadway, the musical enjoys it world premiere in Calgary this August. A coming of age adventure with an electric soundtrack, the story is set in the rust-belt town of Blaydon, Pennsylvania. When the closing of Blaydon's biggest factory results in a deluge of unemployment and instability, the community calls on Ryan, a local youth turned rock and roll superstar for help. Yet Ryan never left his roots on good terms, so must confront the ghosts of his past as well as a home he no longer recognises.
