Zara Naeem in Rumi at London Colliseum

We are over the moon for Zara Naeem who will be making her West End debut in Rumi – The Musical at the same theatre J made his West End debut in, albeit some 36 years later!

Rumi – The Musical examines the transformative and powerful relationship between Rumi and his mentor Shams Tabrizi, and how this extraordinary friendship, integral to Rumi’s development as both thinker and writer, impacted the lives of Rumi’s family, friends and followers, contextualising many of his popular words and works.

Rumi – The Musical features a grand score which combines Middle Eastern authenticity with classical influences and contemporary musical theatre, with lyrics derived from Rumi’s poetry. The full-length concept album is available on Broadway Records.
