The cast and creative team celebrated the opening night of YOUR LIE IN APRIL at Neon on Piccadilly.

Your Lie in April is the first West End musical to be adapted from a manga story, one of Japan’s most popular romantic stories and greatest tearjerkers. The story of love and loss set in the world of classical music competition, it began previews at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre on Friday 28 June and runs for a 3-month season to September 21.

Kosei is a brilliant young piano prodigy, dubbed the “Human Metronome” for his mechanical accuracy, who has won many prestigious competitions. But his mother’s sudden death leaves him bereft and unable to play music. That changes when he strikes a friendship with the brilliant violinist Kaori, who slowly encourages him to perform again. As Kaori continues to lift Kosei’s spirits, he realises that he loves her. But is their relationship doomed? Your Lie in April is an epic love story about two young people trying to navigate their way in the world of classical music, underscored with Frank Wildhorn’s lushly, romantic music.

Your Lie in April has music by multi-Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award nominated Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Bonnie & Clyde) with Lyrics by Carly Robyn Green and Tracy Miller, English Language Book by Rinnie B. Groff. It is directed and choreographed by Nick Winston (Burlesque the Musical, Death Note the Musical, Fame, Annie) and co-directed by Jordan Murphy, with Music arrangement and Orchestrations by Jason Howland.

Your Lie in April manga, published in 2011, has since sold over 7.5 million copies in 17 countries. It was adapted into a 22-part anime TV series in 2014, a Japanese live-action film in 2016 and a Japanese stage production in 2017.
