The Stage

American writer/performer Marino triumphantly returns to Edinburgh with the crazy-true tale of the making and unmaking of his notorious West End Blondie musical disaster, Desperately Seeking Susan. This high-octane comedy offers a tell-all, behind-the-scenes peek at how this £4M musical flopped: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and Madonna; the workshops, the terrifying previews, the scathing reviews, closing night and beyond. Directed by John Clancy.
