I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical

2nd July 20246th July 2024

This comedic musical revue 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, super fans and harsh critics–plus those magical moments that make it all worth while.

Following four Edinburgh Fringe seasons and two London runs, this sell-out show comes on national tour having garnered an astonishing 50 five-star reviews, a WestEnd Wilma award, and three award nominations
