Can it be true? Are they finally making a musical out of Muriel's Wedding? Well it's about time. The truth is they've been talking about it for years now. The show, which is based on the 1994 film will premier on November 6, 2017, at the Sydney Theatre Company, where it will play thru December 30, 2017. Featuring a score comprised of ABBA pop hits, as well as original songs by Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall.
Muriel's Wedding tells the story of Muriel Heslop, who besides being obsessed with the Swedish pop group, is also obsessed with getting married. There's only one problem. No groom. However a trip to Sydney changes all that. Directing the show is Simon Phillips who directed the Broadway and London production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
Could we have another Mamma Mia like hit on our hands? We shall see. Tickets for the new musical are not on sale as of yet. However you can bet that when they do go "on sale" we will be selling them. Stay tuned "to" this website for more info. Until next time theatre fans.
