“I gave up Mary Poppins tickets to be here”
Surely there’s more to Musical Theatre than Phantom, Hamilton and Les Miserables. What about the lesser known (i.e. off, off Broadway) under represented musicals that should have – nay deserve to have our attention! Luckily director, actor, committee member, graphic designer, musical theatre lover and perennial audience member, Kenney Ogilvie, has come to the rescue. Kenney discusses his highly subjective top 5 lesser known musicals that we need to know about.
