I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical

About I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical

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 line-up will comprise James Hume, Felix Mosse, Charlotte O’Rourke and Charlotte Anne Steen.

James Hume is currently appearing in Les Misérablesin the West End, before which he toured internationally in Mary Poppins.

Felix Mosse’s recent credits include Aspects of Lovein Manchester and London,The Rocky Horror Showon its international tour, and the West End production of Les Misérables.

Charlotte O’Rourke has just completed a run in Mamma Mia!in the West End, having previously appeared in its UK tour.

Charlotte Anne Steen’s recent credits include Bat Out Of Helland 42ndStreetin the West End, and Rock Of Agesand We Will Rock Youon tour.
