Some people contest the claim that some people are born entertainers, but when Rob Madge was putting on theatrical performances in their living room as a child, it’s hard to argue that they are anything but. A play with music, Madge’s songs are catchy by speaking truths to bright melodies. Their show is a passionate, witty and loving life story on the freedom and shared happiness that comes with validating one’s identity.
My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is now playing at the Ambassadors Theatre until 1 April.
Some background: Sometimes I’ll see a show at my own leisure – often a fair way into the run where a full review isn’t necessary because tickets are sold out, there’s only a handful of performances left, or the show is well-established – and I’ll still have a few things to say about it.
This is the result: #ReviewIn72, where I write my thoughts on the production in exactly 72 words – no more.
