Magnormos is thrilled to present the Australasian premiere of Obie Award-winning [title of show], opening May 3, 2010 for a limited run at Theatre Works, St Kilda.
The plot follows Jeff, Hunter, Heidi and Susan as they negotiate a musical theatre obstacle course of finding backers, generating publicity, and finally making it to Broadway. As they make the journey from nobodies to somebodies, [title of show] is a witty, melodic and uproarious musical about making ones dreams come true.
Following its debut at NYMF, [title of show] enjoyed an acclaimed run at the Vineyard Theater Off-Broadway in 2006, and saw the release of an Original Cast Album that same year. Jeff and Hunter fulfilled their Broadway aspirations in July 2008, where [title of show] ran for over 100 performances. The Magnormos season is the first production outside of the USA.
Directed by Magnormos founder Aaron Joyner, [title of show] features David Spencer (Priscilla Queen of the Desert the Musical) as Jeff, Michael Lindner (soon to open Mary Poppins, MTC’s 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Production Company’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Damn Yankees) as Hunter, Laura Fitzpatrick (Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Fame – The Musical, The Full Monty, The Thing About Men) as Susan, and introducing Lara Thew as Heidi.
