Suzie Mathers reunites with Wicked co-star Oliver Savile, along with Rocky Horror’s Liam Tamne and Diana Vickers, in this sparkling new comedic musical revue, created by Alexander S. Bermange and directed by Paul Foster.
I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical sets out to present everything that you could possibly want to know about being a musical theatre performer… if only there were any who would dare to admit it.
Created by “wonderfully witty comic songwriter” (LBC) and iTunes comedy album chart-topper Alexander S. Bermange, and directed by Paul Foster – whose recent successes have included A Little Night Music at the Watermill Theatre and Annie Get Your Gun at Sheffield Crucible – this thrilling new 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 (however rare) that make it all seem worthwhile.
With an all-star cast comprised of Suzie Mathers (Wicked, Mamma Mia!), Oliver Savile (Wicked, The Phantom of the Opera), Liam Tamne (The Rocky Horror Show, The Phantom of the Opera and TV’s The Voice) and Diana Vickers (Son Of A Preacher Man, The Rocky Horror Show and TV’s The X Factor), this unique show will cheekily, caustically, yet affectionately lay bare the real reasons why there’s no business like show business…
