Following its World Premiere engagement and a sold out run in Ireland and China, Broadway In Detroit is excited to announce that it will bring Heartbeat of Home, the electrifying new music and dance spectacular created by the producers and director of Riverdance, to Detroit’s Fisher Theatre, March 18-23, 2014.

Created by the Producers and Director of Riverdance, Heartbeat of Home is a brand new tantalizing, high octane, sexy, music and dance extravaganza. This heart-stopping tour de force features the dynamic, vibrant components of traditional Irish, Latin, and Afro-Cuban music and dance. The Irish Mail on Sunday hails it as "an extraordinary highly imaginative show’ and the Irish Independent raves that this world-class cast of thirty-seven including a ten-piece band ‘had every heart in the theatre missing a beat."

Heartbeat of Home features a new and electrifying sound written by award-winning, Golden-Globe-nominated, composer Brian Byrne.  The joyous, heart-stopping and high-energy production also features high-definition, cutting-edge projection technology.

Produced by Moya Doherty, conceived and directed by John McColgan with concept development and lyrics by award-winning Irish writer Joseph O’Connor, Heartbeat of Home showcases world-class dancers from Ireland, USA, Australia, Britain, Canada, Italy, Mexico and Spain and choreography by David Bolger.

The Heartbeat of Home creative team also includes John Carey (Irish Dance Choreography), Alan Farquharson (Set Design), David Torpey/Image Now (Projection Design), Peter Canning (Lighting Design), Ciaran Byrne (Sound Design), Monica Ennis and Niamh O’Connor (Costumes Styling), and Padraic Moyles (Assistant Director).
