Here are five reasons to get your geek on for this new musical at the Playground Theatre
Matt Board and Reina Hardy's brand new sci-fi musical arrives in London, telling the exciting story of how fans of a beloved comic book turned TV show, Angel 8, can save the day. We have five reasons why this really is an unmissable new musical.
1. It has sci-fi, romance and comedy
Whether you're a lover of musicals, sci-fi or anything else, this is a show that celebrates what it means to be passionate about doing the things you love to do. It has romance, comedy and ultimately proves that no power in the universe can keep a story from its fans.
2. It features an awesome cast
It boasts an incredible cast including Suanne Braun (Stargate/Mamma Mia), Stephen Frost (Have I Got News For You/Blackadder), Sophie Powles (Emmerdale/Britannia High) and actress and musical theatre loving YouTuber Amy Lovatt.
3. There's a cracking soundtrack
Fanatical features a fantastic pop score by British composer and lyricist Matt Board (who co-wrote the book, music and lyrics to Austentatious), a great story with two kick-ass female leads at the heart of it and a funny pacy book by award-winning US playwright Reina Hardy.
4. The set will blow your mind
Set at a sci-fi convention for a fictional TV show and comic Angel 8, this show has a design within a design. The epically talented PJ McEvoy has not only designed the set and costumes for the production but has imagined and created the whole world for Angel 8 itself!
