American writer/performer Marino triumphantly returns with the crazy true tale of the making and unmaking of notorious West End Blondie musical disaster, Desperately Seeking Susan. This high-octane comedy offers a tell-all, behind-the-scenes peek at how this £4 million musical flopped: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and Madonna; workshops, terrifying previews, scathing reviews, closing night and beyond. Directed by John Clancy. 'Brilliant' ***** (ThreeWeeks). 'Hilarious' ***** (Cream Of The Fringe) 'Shocking!' **** (FringeReview.co.uk). 'Fast-paced fun and engrossing' **** (List). 'A thrilling, hilarious and anxiety-inducing ride ... a sure-fire hit. Top 5 Shows!' (Stage).
