How many times have you walked past a busker? Have you ever been so affected that you’ve stopped and listened, or do you turn up your own music and rush on?

It provides a compelling insight into this ‘underground’ world.

American writer Matthew Lopez’ enormous play has already written itself into theatrical canon since a widely beloved premiere at the Young Vic, so a move to the West End was a natural fit.
