Join George Heyworth (one half of Bourgeois & Maurice, and graduate of the Yumbo Centre of Dramatic Art) and pianist / Tragic Homosexuality Consultant Matthew Poxon, for a journey into the shadiest corners of musical theatre’s history.

A love letter to musical theatre and a celebration of failure, featuring songs you’ll want to remember from shows you’ve possibly forgotten, by legends including Jerry Herman, Kander & Ebb, Alan Jay Lerner, Ivor Novello and Pet Shop Boys.
