I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical

This comedic musical revue reveals everything you could want to know about musical theatre.

This comedic musical revue reveals everything you could want to know about musical theatre, and the people who love it – on both sides of the curtain!

Covering the journey from wide-eyed drama student to brattish diva or past-it chorus member, or bitter has-been (or never-was), this show lifts the lid on awful auditions, debilitating dance routines, mid-performance mishaps, backstage backstabbing, superfans and harsh critics – plus those magical moments that make it all worthwhile.
Following four Edinburgh Fringe seasons and two London runs, this sell-out show returns to King’s Head Theatre – but live this time! - having garnered an astonishing 50 five-star reviews, a West End Wilma award, and three award nominations.


Written Alexander S. Bermange
Director and Choreographer Matthew Parker
Presented by James Seabright
