In 2007, American actor and playwright Peter Michael Marino wrote a huge musical based on the American film Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the music of the American band Blondie. It opened on London’s West End … and shuttered a month later.
This comic solo train ride about a collective train wreck fills in the blanks of how the £4 million musical was made and unmade. From hatching the idea, to deals with producers, MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; all the way to thrilling workshops, dangerous previews, scathing reviews, closing night and beyond. A 60-minute true tale that traces the evolution of a high-profile musical from conception to closing, and the journey of an American writer finding his voice in a foreign country that speaks the same language.
