Jordan Li-Smith presents The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair at Leicester Curve

Composer, Writer

We are excited to be working with Jordan Li-Smith as he makes his debut as writer and composer!

Jordan’s enchanting new musical The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair is based on the best-selling book by Lara Williamson: “As a huge fan of musical theatre, it is a dream come true to see my novel adapted for the stage by Jordan Li-Smith. Jordan has not only delivered the humour, heartbreak and hope in abundance but he has brought the characters to life in the most exciting, thought- provoking and creative way. It really is a privilege to be part of something so special and I cannot wait for audiences to climb aboard the armchair and experience this moving musical journey.”

After an outstanding taster at Beam Showcase earlier this year, The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in An Armchair will have six showcase performances at Curve, Leicester. See you there!
