Previewing from tonight, inside sources at Sheffield Theatres tell me this has the potential to be a big hit. STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE is a new musical about the lives of people on an iconic Sheffield housing estate, directed by highly-accomplished Artistic Director Robert Hastie. Sheffield theatregoers will make their own minds up during a three-week season to April 6th.
STANDING AT THE SKY’S EDGE is an epic new musical that takes us into the hearts and homes of the people of Park Hill, from its early days as an urban utopia up to the present day, and features new and classic songs from Sheffield’s own Mercury prize- nominated Richard Hawley.
I would expect lots of visitors from London to take a look, especially as this comes from the theatre group which brought us EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE (now in its 2nd year in the West End and booking into 2020). I shall try to get along…. and tell you all about it.
