See Little Miss Sunshine at the Olympia Theatre Dublin

The Off-Broadway production by James Lapine (Into the Woods) and William Finn (Falsettos) lands in London at the Arcola Theatre. The Award-winning creative pair have successfully transformed the award-winning film for stage, retaining the humour and touching moments from the blockbuster. Little Miss Sunshine hit cinema screens in 2006, became a stage sensation in the US in 2011, and is now set to take the UK by storm. The show's plot is largely in keeping with that of the film. It follows the Hoover family as they embark on a road trip from New Mexico to California, set on reaching the Little Miss Sunshine pageant. The story hilariously picks up on the interworkings of the family unit, playfully addressing family dynamics and the role of each family member and character. It lightheartedly packs all members into a creaky VW campervan, watching as they endure each other and come out of the trip with different perspectives. Thanks to Finn's fantastic score, Little Miss Sunshine on stage is full of original music that enhances the plot and makes for an entertaining theatre experience. As in the US, it is expected that audiences will leave London's Arcola fully satisfied with the musical adaptation of the witty and lovable family satire.

About

Whether you’re in the mood for classic and clever comedy, listening to some of the biggest musical acts around, or wanting to catch the next large-scale Christmas panto with the kids, Olympia’s diverse programme ensures Dublin is always fed new and exciting entertainment of all kinds. It first opened in 1879, sat across from Dublin Castle, in an effort to bring the success of owner Dan Lowrey’s UK Music Hall Theatres to Ireland. It was designed by John J. Callaghan, a renowned architect of the late 19th century, however changed over the years due to its need for structural amendments, the collapse of a ceiling during a production, and a truck crashing into the site. It also changed names, starting out as Lowrey’s ‘Star of Erin Music Hall’ before becoming the Olympia in 1923 and gaining a brand new art deco facade to showcase its new title. In over a century of providing entertainment, many famous performers have contributed to the theatre’s stature. The likes of Adele, The Killers, Radiohead, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and Billy Connolly have all taken to its stage, illustrating its varied, yet consistently impressive, lineup to date.
