Kissing A Fool

A queer clown-cabaret tribute to George Michael

This show is part of MP Pride Lab. Explore the season & find out more here!


A queer clown-cabaret tribute to George Michael.

We speculatively dive into the beloved pop-icon’s psyche at the lowest point in his life: after the death of his lover, Anselmo Feleppa and losing a high-profile legal battle with Sony Music, he feared he’d never write another song. In his despair, George awakens the Fool from deep within, a familiar clown companion whose only intelligence is play.

Join us on this musical journey into the tumultuous creative process of one of the greatest artists of a generation and witness the transformation of grief into transcendent creativity through song.


Written, devised & performed by Dylan Aiello and Scarlett Stitt.
