Teatre Tivoli- Barcelona- September 30 to January 9 2011
The Musical “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” (Today I Can't Get up) will be back in Barcelona in its farewell tour in Barcelona in the Tivoli Theater, after more than 5 years on stage and more than 2.000.000 spectators making this play the most successful original production in Spanish of all times.
Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar is an optimistic joyful Spanish musical that becomes a true reflection of the joy and zest for life that characterized the 80’s in Spain. The musical explains the story of two Young guys, Mario and Colate, couple of friends who live in a small town in the early 80s. The two share the same dream, to travel to Madrid to assemble a band there. The arrival to Madrid is in a moment of cultural and social boiling that is accompanied at the beginning by several problems as not getting a job, having no money and no record company is interested in them, but slowly they start moving forward, finding work in a bar called the "33" and meet a nice pair of musicians: William and Panchi. The 4 form their own group called "Rulé", which will win a major contest that will allow them to record their first single; Mario will discover love and Colate the dark world of drugs. The 80’s will be the framework in which the play develops till they become the most important group of Spain.
The Musical “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” is based on 32 songs of the of Spanish band's greatest hits from the 80’s, Mecano, with music and lyrics from José María Cano and Nacho Cano, written by David Serrano and Angel Suarez as Producer. The musical premiere was in 2005 in Madrid and a second almost similar production was made in 2006 that opened in Mexico City with a few minor changes in order to be suitable for the Mexican audience. The play was a complete success in both Spain and Mexico, having various sell-outs, and has been in Tour through different cities of Mexico, The United States and Central America and through a long list of cities in Spain.
Mecano was a Spanish pop group formed by brothers Nacho and José María Cano, along with singer Ana Torroja, whose band debut coincided with the socio cultural movement in Madrid during the 1980s called La Movida Madrileña (Madrilenian Groove). Mecano achieved commercial success and great popularity in the 80s and the early 90s, both in its native country and Latin America, France, and Italy with 25 million worldwide sales. Most of the lyrics were written by one of the Cano brothers from a male perspective, and were mainly sung by Ana Torroja with her melodic, childlike voice preserving the male perspective that gave the group its distinctive, playful and sexually ambiguous style. The band split in September 1992, but their songs continued to be very popular over the years,
The Musical opened in Barcelona on September 2009 and celebrated its 5th anniversary at the Tivoli Theater in May 2010, and will be back in Barcelona on the farewell tour, after passing by Cuenca, Valencia, Vigo and Palma de Mallorca. Tickets are on sale for the shows from September 30 to November 1
