Phoenix Theatre, Elwood
Written by Melvyn Morrow (Dusty) employing lyrics from WS Gilbert, the music of Arthur Sullivan with additional songs by its talented subject, George Grossmith; this musical play about one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most celebrated patter men takes place in his dressing room ahead of his last appearance with the D'Oyly Carte company.
With a promising solo career beckoning, Grossmith cleverly weaves insights and gossip amongst performances of some of the most well-known pieces from the G&S canon.
A light-hearted biographical piece, this is a delightful insider peek into the renowned musical theatre team and a must-see for any fan of light opera.
"A blissful marriage of witty dialogue with some of the most enduringly popular music and lyrics ever written."
