Connected – A New Musical

Created by award winning music theatre composer, Alanya Bridge, Connected follows the lives of 7 Australians whose lives intersect as the choices they make impact not only on their lives, but the lives of those around them.

Connected is a poignant through-composed musical that deals with love and loss, heartache and heart break. We may not always know the stories of our neighbours, family and friends, but we are all just doing our best to navigate each chapter of our lives.


Excellent character vehicle, dramatically effective and memorable with great humour and style.’ – ROBERT DAVIDSON
