It is being described as the film of its generation, capturing the hearts of everyone whilst breaking records around the world. Now LA LA LAND will be brought to audiences like never before via a huge screen accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra.
Set to be the ultimate immersive experience, the LA LA LAND Live UK tour will now come to one of the biggest theatres in Europe, as it stops at the prestigious Blackpool Opera House, located in the Blackpool Winter Gardens.
Having previously hosted some of the biggest names of Hollywood’s Golden Era on it’s stage, including Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, and Judy Garland, as well as Blackpool’s own history of being the home of British ballroom dancing, it is perfectly fitting that the Blackpool Opera House will now also host LA LA LAND Live in Concert.
Having garnered universal critical acclaim, LA LA LAND is a reinvention of the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema for modern times.
Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
The Guardian described LA LA LAND as ‘funny, romantic and utterly charming, with captivating performances from its two stars.’
LA LA LAND received 14 nominations at the 89th Academy Awards ®, and picked up six awards, most notably for Best Director, Best Actress, as well as Best Original Song for ‘City of Stars’ and Best Original Score.
It also received seven nominations at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, winning incredibly in all seven categories including Best Motion Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Original Score.
The score for LA LA LAND, composed by Justin Hurwitz who also scored director Damien Chazelle’s previous feature films ‘Guy and Madeleine on a Park Bench’, and ‘Whiplash’, has also received critical acclaim, particularly for the film’s show-stopping songs ‘City of Stars’ and ‘Audition (The Fools Who Dream)’.
