What Makes a Musical a Musical – The (Musical) Cabaret

Event Event

Have you ever wondered what goes into making a musical? Forget what you think you know, and join the hilarious award winning performers from Grey Lantern in the WORLD PREMIERE of What Makes a Musical a Musical - A (Musical) Cabaret! in an affectionate comedic romp poking fun at our favourite musical stereotypes - what really goes into making a musical?

Follow the creative agony of the hapless composer as we meet demanding divas, sad ingenues and unnecessary sub-plots all wanting their moment in the spotlight. With kick ass choreography and whip smart comedic timing, the cast will make you cry with laughter with songs such as "THIS IS AN OPENING NUMBER", "NOTHING IS ORIGINAL" and "GIRLS LOVE A MUSICIAN" as we peek behind the scenes and reimagine the stereotypes of musical theatre.
