This comedic musical revue by Alexander S. Bermange reveals everything you could want to know about musical theatre, and the people who love it – on both sides of the curtain!

Covering the journey from wide-eyed drama student to brattish diva or past-it chorus member, or bitter has-been (or never-was), this show lifts the lid on awful auditions, debilitating dance routines, mid-performance mishaps, backstage backstabbing, superfans and harsh critics – plus those magical moments that make it all worthwhile.

After three seasons at Edinburgh Fringe and a London run at Wilton’s Music Hall, this sell-out show has garnered over 50 five-star reviews, a West End Wilma award, and many award nominations including best musical at Edinburgh Fringe 2023 in the OffFest Awards.
