Two leading ladies … showing that bigger is better

After a hilarious night of comedy cabaret with Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin in 2019, Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood return to the RPAC stage for a satirical look at musical theatre and its greatest (thinnest) leading ladies.

With their trademark wit, stunning harmonies and feminist chutzpah, Marsden and Wood deliver an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek exploration of body image. Littered with songs from musicals that feature two leading ladies, Fat Musicals takes on Chicago, Calamity Jane, Frozen, Sideshow, A Chorus Line, Wicked and Cats … okay, Cats doesn’t exactly have two female leads, but there’s so much fun to be had with Cats!

Bigger than Broadway and wider than the West End, Fat Musicals is the latest cabaret form the hilarious and award-winning comedy troupe, Lady Sings It Better.
