In a unique and hilarious celebration of musical theatre, the Old Joint Stock was rocking with laughter last night as Stage Door Johnny took to the stage in his premiere solo show Less Miserable.
Cabaret meets musical theatre in this absolutely laugh-a-minute show, as ‘Johnny’ rips off various musical standards. But it was more than just an evening of songs re-imagined, it was sheer genius.
Without spoiling any of the surprises, the jokes came thick and fast and for any musical theatre fan it was an absolute delight. With lyrics tweaked, Good Morning Baltimore became Good Evening Birmingham and The Surrey With The Fringe On Top became an expletive explosion.
Cats met Cats Protection, Evita met Europop and much more as the audience were left in fits of laughter.
A true star, Stage Door Johnny brought everything you could possibly want in a performance and squeezed it into a neat 75 minutes. When he comes back, which he no doubt will, make sure to grab a ticket because this is musical theatre cabaret at its most joyous.
