London – In 2007, American Peter Michael Marino wrote the musical version of the Madonna movie Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the hit songs of Blondie. The mega-musical opened on London’s West End at the Novello Theatre … and closed a month later. WHOOPS! Desperately Seeking the Exit is Pete’s critically acclaimed true story of the making and unmaking of his notorious flop that played everywhere from the USA, to the UK, to Australia.
At this special 5th anniversary one-night-only presentation, the show gets a new twist as Marino’s roller coaster tale is joined by original Desperately Seeking Susan cast member Steve Serlin (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), workshop cast members David Calvitto (12 Angry Men, Americana Absurdum, These Shining Lives) and Neil McDermott (Eastenders, Shrek the Musical, Wind in the Willows), and special guests Tim McArthur (Into The Woods, Mountains, Resonance Radio Curtain Up Show), and Amy Cooke-Hodgson (Austentatious, Girlfriends).
Desperately Seeking The Exit is at The Arts Theatre 26th July.
