Impeccable vocal agility, faultlessly-measured interpretation
and just enough audience engagement...
Derek Bond's direction of these four talented and experienced artists
and Bermange's original insight into the world of showbiz
make this classy pastiche a welcome alternative to the blockbuster blowout
The Spy In The Stalls
The laughs come thick and fast...
With its tales of catastrophic auditions, ridiculous performance rituals, and obsessive fans,
I Wish My Life Were Like A Musical offers a delightfully whimsical take on
the musical theatre industry, imparting all the things you ever wanted to know
but were too afraid to ask

Full of theatrical jokes... beautifully performed...

London Theatre Reviews
Suzie Mathers, Madalena Alberto, Lucas Rush and Cedric Neal...
bring Bermange's material to energetic and hilarious life
The writing and performances are incredible... It should amuse equally both those who love
and those who loathe musical theatre

Clever, witty and laugh-out-loud... A brilliant way to spend 80 minutes...
Grab a ticket whilst you can!
A brilliantly funny night out
An exhilarant and smartly written 75-minute spectacle
Pocket Size Theatre
I cannot recommend it more highly
Alexander S. Bermange
reveals what lies behind the glitz and glamour
with great humour and intelligence...
confirms his status as an original and creative composer,
calling to mind the elegance of Noel Coward, the sharp satire of a Brecht,
and the nuances of a Sondheim
The most wonderfully
written and excitingly conceived songs... Magnificent performances...
Go and see this show
Genius in comic songwriting... Fun, clever, insightful, witty, and thoroughly hilarious
Bermange has hilariously compiled a collection of anecdotes and warnings that reveal the
struggle behind the seemingly glitzy world of showbusiness
