By combining innovative theatre content, an organic production process, and a continued commitment to the growth of the Nigerian theatre industry through the provision of first-rate theatre productions with intellectual and creative integrity, and also possessing mainstream appeal, AbOriginal Theatre is succeeding in becoming the place where Nigerian theatre lives.

OLURONBI: THE MUSICAL

Oluronbi: The Musical celebrated Nigeria’s 50th year of independence with its longest and best received performance run in September & October 2010.

 

Oluronbi: The Musical has become a Nigerian phenomenon. As Nigeria’s first-ever Broadway-style production, this theatrical spectacle aspires to international theatrical standards while remaining authentically Nigerian, employing comedy, drama, original music, and a 50-member cast as the foundation of its theatrical success.

 

The Production’s past 3 performance runs have received rave reviews from Nigeria’s leading media and entertainment critics, including The Guardian, NEXT, HiTV Magazine, and MADE magazine, launching the theatre section of both magazines.

 

The Show’s success has extended beyond Nigeria’s borders, receiving commentary coverage on the popular MNET satellite network television programme Studio 53 and on the UK’s BEN-TV. 

 

FRACTURES

An adaptation of “A View from the Bridge”, Arthur Miller’s classic study of cultural conflict and emotional self-discovery, this compelling tale of power and conflict was received in February 2010 with critical acclaim and enthusiastically embraced by audiences enthralled by its depiction of the consequences of the loss of control as a result of cultural and emotional turmoil.

 

The much anticipated Fractures received coverage by and positive reviews from Mnet’s Studio 53 as well from a number of Nigerian media outlets, including This Day, NEXT, Punch, and Compass newspapers, and Channels, Galaxy, and Silverbird television stations.

 

A GAME OF WITS

A two-person play written by critically-lauded playwright Ita Hozaife and starring two of Nigerian theatre’s leading lights, Jude Orhorha and Iyabo Amoke, A Game of Wits is a creative interpretation of the age-old “battle of the sexes” which humorously depicted the duplicity and mental games that take place during (and add spice to) the stages of the courtship ritual.

 

The production’s 2006 performance run received coverage and positive reviews from the NTA television network. The 2011 performance run of A Game of Wits marked a revisit to abOriginal’s initial foray into theatre, having previously hosted the 2006 performance run of A Game of Wits in conjunction with O.N.E Integrated Management.
