New musicals

Coming soon to Melbourne theatres

Hot off the press: Melbourne's 'The Age' newspaper shared the goss this week about some new musicals coming to Melbourne.

Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert

This new local show about the doyenne of the kitchen, Margaret Fulton, opens at Theatreworks in St Kilda in just a couple of weeks. Starring the talented and gorgeous Amanda Lehpamer as Fulton, it looks very promising and very Australian.

Devo: The Musical

It seems that everything old is new again for 80s band, Devo. They're in the midst of writing a musical, and are aiming for Broadway. Hmm ... I'll believe this one when I see it.

I Dreamed a Dream

A new English musical about the rise and rise of Susan Boyle, featuring a jukebox catalogue of her famous songs. This will do huge business, even moreso if 'La Boyle' comes out to do some concerts around the same time. God bless you, 'SuBo': keep releasing those albums, because it keeps me covered for Christmas and birthday gifts for my mother.

  1. The Susan Boyle stage musical IDAD certainly did huge business in the UK with often sold out theatres and great reviews. Brilliant show with or without Susan herself.
