Acclaimed new musical ‘Public Domain’ has released the song and video ‘TIK TOK’ ahead of its live world premiere in the West End.
Adam Lenson, the show’s director, said: “This video release gives audiences a taste of the exciting, multi-sensory world that they will experience when they watch the live world premiere of ‘Public Domain’ at the Vaudeville Theatre in May. Audiences will feel like they are literally falling into the internet as they watch as there are more than 1,300 different video and special effect cues! There has never been a new musical like this in the West End”
‘Public Domain’ is a dark, funny, verbatim musical about the internet: Those who own it; those who live in it; and YOU!
Following an acclaimed digital debut at Southwark Playhouse, this thrilling, new musical, composed entirely from the real-life words of YouTube vloggers, Instagram influencers, Facebook’s tech giants, and everyday internet users now has its live world premiere in the West End.
Written and performed by the hugely talented Francesca Forristal (Oddball) and Jordan Paul Clarke (Showstoppers), this blackly comic musical follows two teenage influencers; Millie (sporty spice, health guru, buddha bowls – millennial) and Z (GCSEs existential dread, swag – generation Z), as well as featuring exclusive ‘footage’ of inside Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan’s family home.
‘Public Domain’ will perform from 27 – 30 May, 2021 at the Vaudeville theatre where COVID-19 Secure guidelines for social distancing will include robust risk mitigation, hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, contactless tickets,temperature testing and the regular deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.
