WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Talk Like Singing is the first-ever original Japanese musical to premiere in the U.S. This energetic and heartwarming comedy is a never-before-seen style of musical theater. A unique young man named Tarlow knows only how to communicate through song and dance. Tarlow appears to go through life happily singing his thoughts, regardless of his mood, because of the four band members playing music in his mind. With the help of a speech therapist and psychologist, the singing voices inside his head are eliminated, and for the first time in his life Tarlow can speak without singing. Talk Like Singing represents an incredible collaborative effort with direction, script and lyrics by the talented Koki Mitani, composition and music direction by Yasuharu Konishi, and lead performance role performed by Shingo Katori.
