Gord and I saw Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical this afternoon at the Royal Alexandra Theatre on King Street W. It's a Mirvish production.
Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical tells the story of the world’s most unlikely buoy-band!
Based on the true story of the chart-topping Cornish singing sensations and their hit 2019 movie, 'Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical' is a feel-good voyage about friendship, community and music that will give any land-lover a mighty pair of sea legs.
When a group of Cornish fishermen came together to sing the traditional working songs they’d sung for generations, nobody, least of all the fishermen, expected the story to end on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. They are spotted by a fish-out-of-water music manager on a trip from London, who must learn that there is more to life than selling your sole for fifteen minutes of fame.
So climb aboard, set sail and feel the salty sea air rush through your hair with this brand new musical.
I've seen the movie a couple times ... it's cute and the tunes are good and lively.
The musical is sooooo good! Lots of fabulous toe-tapping singing and dancing! The musicians are very talented ... not only did they play instruments but they also sang and danced.
