Based on the hit 80s romantic comedy, this new musical of Desperately Seeking Susan features the back catalogue of Blondie tracks woven into the much-loved story.
Roberta Glass, a suburban New Jersey housewife, escapes her humdrum life by reading the personal ads placed by Susan, a street-smart New York City drifter, and her freewheeling boyfriend Jay. Through a quirky twist of fate, Roberta and Susan unexpectedly swap lives and are plunged into a madcap world of jewel heists, magic shows and rock ‘n’ roll. The collision of their identities takes them on a wild ride of transformation and discovery until they realise that just when you think you know where your life is headed, something magical happens and turns it all around…
The musical score features Blondie hits including Heart Of Glass, Atomic, One Way Or Another, Dreaming and The Tide Is High, plus a new song written especially for the musical by Deborah Harry, Moment Of Truth.
