MY SON'S A QUEER (BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?) Will Debut on Broadway This Spring
Following sold-out and critically acclaimed runs in London’s West End and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Olivier Award nominated play My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?) starring writer and performer Rob Madge, will arrive on Broadway this spring at the Lyceum Theatre for 16 weeks only. Performances will begin on February 27, 2024, with opening night slated for March 12.
This hilarious, poignant, and infectiously joyous one-person play follows the journey of a family as they explore their son's love for all things Disney, theatre, and their identity as a Queer human. As much a hilarious ode to musical theatre and VHS tapes as it is the power of a family’s acceptance, the production beautifully weaves together themes of love and self-discovery with a pop-culture love-in for fairy tale fanboy/girls (and everyone in between).
Rob Madge is a theatre maker, writer and actor who began working professionally in theatre at the age of 9, having spent the majority of their childhood forcing their family to help them put on shows in the living room. Select theater credits include Mary Poppins, Macbeth, Oliver!, and Les Misérables.
My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is written by Rob Madge, directed by Luke Sheppard, and features songs by Pippa Cleary. The production also features scenic and costumes by Ryan Dawson Laight, lighting by Jai Morjaria, sound by Tingying Dong, video by George Reeve, and orchestrations by Simon Nathan.
My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is produced by Tom Smedes, Heather Shields, and Peter Stern. My Son's A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is produced by arrangement with Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor Mills.
