We want this production to be appealing to both our local and global audience.”

“When I first heard the story idea and the cast list including many industry heavyweights I respect so much, I immediately knew this was a production I wanted to direct and be a part of. Lara and the Beat has been such an interesting journey so far, and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are creating here,” says Tosin Coker, Director of Lara and the Beat.
