The first London production of  High Fidelity musical will open at the new Turbine Theatre in Battersea running there from 21st October -7th December with casting to be confirmed.

The musical is based on Nick Hornby's 1995 novel of the same name (which was adapted into a 2000 film starring John Cusack and Jack Black), and  follows a record store owner in his mid-30s who prefers to observe life rather than live it – much to the anger of his girlfriend. 

The musical first ran in Boston in 2006 with he film and stage production moving Hornby's novel from London to USA, but this new production will take the story back to the British capital.

High Fidelity Musical has a book by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), music by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Amanda Green (Bring It On). Vikki Stone will join the team to work with the authors to relocate the action back to its London/Camden roots.

Tom Jackson Greaves
will direct and choreograph the production, which has designs by David Shields, sound by Dan Samson and lighting by Andrew Exeter.
