Returning by popular demand, I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical presents everything you could possibly want to know about being a musical theatre performer… if only there were any who would dare to admit it.
Suzie Mathers (Wicked, Mamma Mia!) reprises her role and is joined by a sensational new all-star cast comprising Madalena Alberto (Evita, War of the Worlds), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical, Chess) and Lucas Rush (American Idiot, Thoroughly Modern Millie). Derek Bond (Sweet Charity (Manchester Royal Exchange), and Tom Fletcher's The Christmasaurus) will direct.
This sparkling musical revue comedically covers the journey from eager drama school graduate right through to brattish diva, or past-it chorus member, or bitter has-been (or "never-was"). Along the way, you will be privy to anecdotes, revelations and confessions - in song - that lift the lid on awful auditions, debilitating dance routines, mid-performance mishaps, and backstage backstabbing - alongside celebrations of those magical moments that make it all seem worthwhile.
