‘Susan Boyle: The Musical’ tour gets Irish dates

There’s a musical.

If you are a fan of Susan Boyle’s and live in the United Kingdom, then in many ways it is hard that you can place the upcoming “Susan Boyle: The Musical” tour as anything other than a must-see. It’s the story of the remarkable woman’s sudden rise to fame told on the stage, talking about everything from her famous “Britain’s Got Talent” audition in 2009 to her life now as a Platinum-selling artist who has still managed to live a relatively private life.

We’ve known for quite a while now that the musical was slated to first begin on March 23 in Newcastle, UK– and now, Inside Ireland is reporting that the show is coming to Dublin’s Grand Canal Theatre from April 24-28. (There are a number of other tour dates still to be announced.)

Scottish actress (and Boyle favorite) Elaine C. Smith is set to play the “I Dreamed a Dream” singer — and now, we just have to wait and see if this musical manages to make all of our dreams for fantastic entertainment come true.

Would you pay to see the Susan Boyle musical?
