“New York has the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason!”
The Lyric is thrilled to present the world premiere of the stage musical version of the popular movie charting the life of Belfast punk legend Terri Hooley, GOOD VIBRATIONS.
Good Vibrations tells the story of Terri Hooley, a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast. When the conflict shuts down his city, and all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on ‘the most bombed half-mile in Europe’ and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a 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.
It has been adapted for the stage by the same writing team behind film biopic – Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson – for which the pair were nominated for Outstanding Debut at the 2014 BAFTA Film awards.
