I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical
THU 25–SAT 27 JUL, 8PM
Live at The Everyman

Sell-out show I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical comes to The Everyman.

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, 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 goes on national tour having garnered an astonishing 50 five-star reviews, a West End Wilma award, as well as three nominations.
