We’ve Got Each Other is a ‘tragic love story’ following a docker and a waitress, and their forbidden love for one another. Featuring the music of Sir Jon Bon Jovi*, this joyous jukebox musical arrives with 12 Olivier Nominations** and universal acclaim***.
We’ve Got Each Other takes a comic look at the modern jukebox musical, the role of the imagination and our insatiable desire for big budget extravagance.
Winner of the BE Festival Early Ideas Award
Dramaturgy by Nick Walker
Lighting Design by Arnim Friess
* Jon Bon Jovi may not appear in person. Jon is not an actual Sir.
** Not guaranteed, but if there’s any justice in the world, this musical will at least
take home Best Design.
