Miracle City is one of Australia’s greatest musicals, penned by Max Lambert and the late Nick Enright. Set backstage at a popular televangelist broadcast, the musical tells the story of the Truswell family, who will stop at nothing to see their Christian theme park built for the glory of God (and a little profit for the family would be welcome, too).
The musical had its premiere at Sydney Theatre Company in 1996, and was revived at the Hayes Theatre Co in 2014. Now it’s receiving a new production at the Sydney Opera House, with a cast that includes Missy Higgins in her musical theatre debut.
