The award winning, ever impressive Bath based Exit Stage Left return to the Rondo this year with another Bath premiere of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” A brilliantly witty, observational musical which holds as the mantle of the longest running off – Broadway musical.
Those who were fortunate enough to see “A New Brain” at The Rondo last year or on its subsequent tour will know that this Company are a force to be reckoned with. Attracting some of the best talent in the area they are able to produce some bold new musical theatre writing, something which few other companies are brave enough to manage.
“…an outstanding achievement in all aspects…” Barbara Smith, (Rose Bowl Review, May 2011) Praise for A New Brain
James Bryant – Moore directs the production he explained:
“The title of this great show is self explanatory in many ways; as we aim to offer up a mirror up to the audience, asking them to see glimpses of their own experiences in the beautiful dialogue and cleverly crafted lyrics. The show explores the universal themes of being single, dating, marriage and the joys of parenthood, drawing comedy from the reality of those experiences. The wonderful observational style has left some of the company wondering if they’re actually talking about friends or their own situations. I have wanted to produce this show for some time as I believe the way that the play weaves through the relationships of various characters is a wonderful comment on modern relationships and socially it is completely relevant.”
Founder of Exit Stage Left, Alison McCausland has again ensured that Bath gets yet another taste of what Broadway is offering. “Some people just don’t want to see any old musical anymore; there is a real interest in new writing and getting away from commercial theatre. The Rondo is a brilliant venue and champions companies like us who want to do something different on a smaller scale”
The Company hope to tour following the Rondo dates and obviously another award in the cabinet would not be turned down either. Catch this great team at The Rondo Theatre www.rondotheatre.co.uk 11-14th July 8pm £10 / £8 concessions
