DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT
Purple Venue, Lowndes Shakespeare Center
5/14-5/25/2014
After acclaimed runs in NYC, the UK and Australia, writer/performer Peter Michael Marino presents the comical autopsy on his $6 million West End "Desperately Seeking Susan" musical fiasco in DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT. Directed by Obie Award winner John Clancy, this Orlando premiere will be performed at the Orlando Fringe from May 14-25 in the Purple Room. In 2007, American playwright Peter Michael Marino wrote a musical based on the film Desperately Seeking Susan featuring the music of Blondie. It opened on London's West End…and closed a month later. DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT offers a comical, behind-the-scenes peek at how this $6 million musical was made and unmade: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; the workshops, the previews, the scathing reviews, closing night and beyond! "Highly entertaining. A salutary lesson to anyone looking to the stage for fame, fortune and happiness." -- British Theatre Guide "Hilarious. The man can tell a story." -- Naples News "Like SMASH on speed. Relentlessly rapid-fire." -- Fringe Review (AU) "Both funny and horribly revealing." -- The Times (UK) "Fast-paced fun ... a simply uplifting and completely engrossing tribute to the human spirit." -- The List, Edinburgh
