Good Vibrations: A Punk Rock Musical

U.S. premiere of the Lyric Theatre, Belfast production



Irish Arts Center

Hell's Kitchen, NYC


New York has the haircuts,
London has the trousers,
but Belfast has the reason!

Based on the BAFTA award-winning film by Glenn Patterson and Colin Carberry, Good Vibrations chronicles the story of Terri Hooley, a radical, rebel, and music-lover in 1970s Belfast. When the Troubles shut down his city and his friends take sides, Terri opens a record shop and becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids who join his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, and bring his hometown back to life.

This thrilling new musical features a cast of twelve and a bounty of anthems from Northern Ireland’s punk era, including the Undertones’ “Teenage Kicks,” the Outcasts’ “Just Another Teenage Rebel,” and Stiff Little Fingers’ “Alternative Ulster.”

“Glorious … The full-throated spirit of punk is alive and roaring”—IRISH TIMES
