Description

Boasting a West End Wilma Award, a Broadway World Award nomination and a raft of five-star reviews for its recent London run, this comedic musical revue reveals everything you could want to know about being a musical theatre performer... if only there were any who'd admit it. 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, and backstage backstabbing – plus those magical moments that make it all worthwhile.

The premise here has the potential for extreme navel-gazing – the truth of life in musical theatre, as told by the stars themselves. But Alexander Bermange’s songs are wry enough to carry it off. There’s even a Tom Lehrer-like flair to a couple of them, particularly when coupled with the...

Musical Theatre Musings (4/5 stars) 6 days ago

Throughout the show we are treated to a selection of comic songs which takes us through from the glitzy opening number to the encore, from the audition stages through to making it as a diva and all the stages in between.

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 7 days ago

Let’s be honest, we’d probably all enjoy life just a little bit more if it resembled something out of musical theatre; if every problem could be solved with a catchy tune or a showstopping dance number, life would be pretty sweet. Alexander S. Bermange’s I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical embraces this notion, giving us a hilarious frolic through sixty minutes of unadulterated love for musical theatre.
