My Son’s a Queer, (But what can you do?) will transfer to the Ambassadors Theatre, in London’s West End from 25 January 2023.
When Rob was 12, they attempted to stage a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their grandma. As Rob donned a wig and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy.
Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Ariel’s bubble gun didn’t even work properly. Grandma had a nice time though.
My Son’s a Queer, (But what can you do?) is the autobiographical story of social-media sensation Rob Madge.
Rob Madge said, “I am so very excited to be bringing My Son’s a Queer back to the West End, this time at The Ambassadors Theatre. Putting on a show about when I used to put on shows in my living room continues to be the most surreal, magical thing and I can’t wait to share my brilliant, hilarious family and our story (which I hope is a relatable one) with more audiences. I hope that people leave My Son’s a Queer feeling brighter and uplifted with the knowledge that anything is possible when the stage is your living room!”
