This brand new musical comedy is set in Las Vegas in 1952, where the tourists are going mad for nuclear blasts in the desert whilst they sip cocktails by their hotel pools and bask in a glorious age of beauty pageants. Sounds crazy? Enter a world were “every mushroom cloud has a silver lining and fallout is your friend...” alongside a some of the best British musical theatre talent currently on offer in London.
Written by Adam Long, Gabriel Vick and Alex Jackson-Long, Miss Atomic Bomb is co-directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Bill Deamer and is set to be one of the most original and hilarious musicals to open in London in 2016. Featuring an all-star cast led by celebrated actress and comedian Catherine Tate, TV star Daniel Boys and upcoming West End leading man Dean John-Wilson, you won't want to miss this rare opportunity to see a thoroughly unique new musical in the intimate environment of the St James Theatre.
Described as a 'radiant' new musical, the show has been inspired by the real life nuclear tests and beauty pageants of the 1950s. In the desert surroundings of Las Vegas where tourists bask in the sun and luxury, we meet our heroine Candy whose sheep have mysteriously died. Hopeless manager Lou of the Golden Goose is struggling to come up with a appropriate atomic gimmick, whilst Joey announces he's deserted the army and fashioista Myrna is busy designing clothing for pigs.
With nuclear tests taking place in the surrounding desert and tourism seemingly unaffected, the four friends are thrown together when a spy enters their midst and joins the mayhem.
Fans of contemporary musical theatre will delight in seeing this hilarious and original musical comedy in one of London's newest fringe theatre venues. Complete with an exciting cast and creative team, Miss Atomic Bomb is destined for great things – make sure you're the first to see and support this exciting new show.
