“I was drawn to Tiger Bay the Musical as it tells a particular untold story in a colourful and entertaining way. It musical has such a great sense of some of the local history but it’s a universal story. Nobody gets away from heartbreak and there are themes throughout - class divide, loss, conflict - that everyone will connect with.”
