Fat Musicals - A Body of Work MILKE
For ages: 16+
An empowering and honest satire on musical theatre. Marsden and Wood skilfully weave a narrative that was heartwarming and self-aware. We need more of these women on our mainstages!
Join Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood (from Mother's Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin) for a satirical look at musical theatre and its greatest (thinnest) leading ladies. With their trademark wit, stunning harmonies and feminist chutzpah, Marsden and Wood deliver an irreverent, tongue in cheek exploration of body image. Littered with songs from musicals that feature two leading ladies, Fat Musicals takes on Chicago, Calamity Jane, Sideshow, Wicked and many more. Bigger than Broadway and wider than the West End, Fat Musicals is the latest from the women who brought you festival sensation Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin and award-winning comedy troupe Lady Sings it Better.
