Directed by Nida graduate Tim Hill, this production of the contemporary classic has promised audiences a new take on the musical.

“I’m looking forward to stripping the show back to its original off-Broadway roots and bringing out a raw, sexy and uncensored production to honour the twentieth year anniversary,” says Hill.
