Jerry Pooe who is the Director for ‘1976 The Musical’ says, “It will be different because we are going to be mordenizing it. It’s going to be happening at this period of time but of course with the reflections of 1976 and it’s going to be also having a lot of videos and images, lots of images. So, it’s really going to be a big production with the support of multimedia in it.”
