Adelaide Premiere | Australia
Join Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood for a satirical look at musical theatre and its greatest (thinnest) leading ladies. With their trademark wit, stunning harmonies and feminist chutzpah, Marsden and Wood deliver an irreverent, tongue in cheek exploration of body image.
Littered with songs from musicals that feature two leading ladies, Fat Musicals takes on Chicago, Calamity Jane, Sideshow, Wicked and many more.
Bigger than Broadway and wider than the West End, Fat Musicals is the latest from the women who brought you festival sensation Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin and award-winning comedy troupe Lady Sings it Better.
An empowering and honest satire on musical theatre. Marsden and Wood skilfully weave a narrative that was heartwarming and self-aware. We need more of these women on our mainstages! The Music
Marsden and Wood manage to have the audience simultaneously in stitches of laughter and marvelling at their almost symbiotic harmonies The Advertiser
