More than 45,000 Flemish people have already bought a ticket for ‘Forget Barbara’, the new feel-good musical based on the music of Will Tura. Although the show will only premiere in December, Studio 100 is already adding extra performances.

In Forget Barbara Gert Verhulst, James Cooke, Jonas Van Geel and Jelle Cleymans explore the atmosphere of the 1970s in a musical about a bar owner and his three sons. The musical part consists entirely of hits by Will Tura. This sum of names is clearly to the taste: more than 45,000 interested parties have already secured a ticket.

Due to its success, Studio 100 is already adding extra data. The premiere is scheduled for December 11, in the Pop-up Theater in Puurs, and the first series of performances will run until the first week of January. In June resumes Forget Barbara with at least twelve shows.
