24th – 27th June 2019
in association with Siȃn Baxter and Bread & Circuses Arts
Nick Cassenbaum returns to the Macready Theatre following his international hit show Bubble Schmeisis (“generous and poignant”★★★★ The Stage). This time he has created a passionate and playful tribute to his childhood hero, Michael Barrymore.
Ever since he was a kid, Nick has loved Michael Barrymore. In this heartfelt tribute, Nick invites you to experience the turbulent love affair between entertainer and audience. Nick uses his critically-acclaimed storytelling style and Barrymore’s iconic shticks, to weave his own story alongside Barrymore’s dramatic rise and fall. With live music and gags aplenty, it promises to be ‘Alwight!’
Created with Danny Braverman (Wot?No Fish!!!), supported by Bread& Circuses Arts, Arts Council England, Battersea Arts Centre and developed at and supported by TheYard Theatre.
