BLACK BOX is a brand new, must-see, Australian musical based on the extraordinary true story of David Warren, the Australian inventor who created the black box flight recorder that is now on every plane around the globe, making its world premiere at QPAC in May.

Driven by the death of his father in an unexplained plane crash when he was eight years old, BLACK BOX follows David as he fights for an invention that could record the final moments of a flight before it crashes – the black box.

His obsession around this invention places his career, marriage and mind at risk. It’s a show about memory, and how we hold onto, and let go of, those we love.

Black box inventor David Warren will be played by internationally renowned singer and actor Michael
Cormick (Phantom of the Opera, Beauty and the Beast), while David’s wife, Ruth, will be played by Helpmann Award winner Helen Dallimore, who as well as touring extensively throughout the UK and Australia was the original Glinda opposite Idina Menzel in the West End production of Wicked.

The auditory world that inspired David to create his life-saving invention shapes the audience’s experience at BLACK BOX, which utilises pre-recorded voices and instruments to create a world of music and memory to tell his story.

While Helen and Michael are on stage, the rest of the cast are present through a history-making audio experience. BLACK BOX is the first binaural musical with audience members wearing headphones that allow them to be totally immersed in a 360-degree world of sound.

Don't miss the world premiere of this ground-breaking musical - book, lyrics and music by Queenslander Paul Hodge, and directed by David Berthold.
