Rahman’s strong recommendationPublished: November 7, 2015
Maestro A R Rahman is pretty much impressed by the musical ‘Bend it like Beckham‘ and has strongly batted for it on his social networking page.
“Bend it like Beckham The Musical was glorious. With a melodic score & fantastic choreography and an almost perfect balance of Indian and western sensibilities with bold, political, cheeky and honest dialogues, it felt the same as when I watched Mama Mia ages ago …” he wrote.
The Oscar-Grammy winner further posted on his online page: “Congratulations! All of you who love musical theatre should check this out in London.”
‘Bend It Like Beckham’ is a musical with music by Howard Goodall, lyrics by Charles Hart, and a book by Gurinder Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges. Based on the 2002 film of the same name, the musical made its West End and world premiere at the Phoenix Theatre in May 2015.
