A Trip Across The Universe is inspired by Julie Taymor’s musical-movie Across The Universe.
With music and lyrics taken from The Beatles, director Stuart James wanted to create a new concept production for his Speakeasy Theatre company in Wellington, New Zealand, when he first put on the play.
The original Wellington production sold out its run and gained worldwide interest from the Hong Kong School of American Musical Theatre, Papakura Theatre Company and a school production in Durham, England which also performed the show.
The Bob Hope Theatre Actors’ Company production brings together the original Wellington director Stuart James and vocal coach Trish Butterfield, teamed with musical director Hayden Taylor and producer Peter Stonnell to bring A Trip Across The Universe to life at the Bob Hope Theatre.
The show features a rock’n’roll score filled with songs written by The Beatles, including I Want To Hold Your Hand, Come Together, I Am The Walrus, Blackbird and Across The Universe.
