"Unmissable" ★★★★★ Everything Theatre

"Irreverent, charming and has a bloody good soundtrack" Whats on Stage

"Unashamedly celebrates the analogue" Evening Standard

"Be Here Now is a lively, witty work… Hugely enjoyable"

Pumping ’90s beats, suspect dance routines and angsty shoegazing combine to celebrate the irresistible power of pop and examine how that song will always bring back feelings of love lost and won.

An irreverently comic yet tender look at how music seeps into our lives, Be Here Now takes you back to your teenage bedroom – a playful and chaotic world of CDs, cassettes and videotapes, rewinding, fast-forwarding and pausing fantasies, memories, the rawness of love and the music that defines it. So hit repeat and relive the scenes you already play over and over in your head, to a soundtrack of ’90s classics.
