Muriel’s Wedding the Musical
Any aussie worth their salt would have seen Australian Classic “Muriel’s Wedding” which catapulted Toni Collete into the limelight and a star was born.
Undateable. Unemployable. Unstoppable.
Sydney Theatre Company is bringing back Muriel with a world premiere of the iconic Australian film reworked as an iconic laugh-out musical
Stuck in a dead-end life in Porpoise Spit, Muriel dreams of the perfect wedding – the white dress, the church, the attention. Unfortunately, there’s one thing missing. A groom. Following her dreams to Sydney, Muriel ends up with everything she ever wanted – a man, a fortune and a million Twitter followers. That’s when things start to go really wrong.
PJ Hogan (the original writer and director) has updated his screenplay into a new stage show, updating the the story for a modern audience but keeping all the irreverence and naughtiness of the film along with edge and wit.
Director Simon Phillips (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) and a star studded creative team; eye-popping sets and costumes from Gabriela Tylesova (Love Never Dies). Original music by award-winning singer-songwriters Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall.Sure to be a hit with a big cast and a live band.
Terrible? Terribly excited.
