About the Show Less...

The internationally acclaimed solo comedy look at the collective train wreck that was a massive West End flop. Read More >

In 2007, American actor and playwright Peter Michael Marino wrote a massive musical based on the film Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the hit songs of Blondie. It opened in the West End – and closed a month later. Whoops!

This solo comedy train ride about a collective train wreck fills in the blanks of how the £4M musical was made and unmade. From hatching the idea, to deals with producers, MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; all the way to thrilling workshops, dangerous previews, scathing reviews, closing night and beyond.

Desperately Seeking The Exit has been winning over audiences from New York City to the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe where it was named one of the “Top 5 Shows” by The Stage.

Please Note: 6pm shows on Sunday 5th and Sunday 19th May will include a post-show Q&A.
