About Desperately Seeking Susan
Based on the smash 1980's romantic comedy film and featuring the classic hits of BLONDIE, the new musical DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN promises to be the must-see ticket of the Autumn.
Roberta Glass, a suburban New Jersey housewife, escapes her humdrum life by reading the personal ads placed by Susan, a street-smart New York City drifter, and her freewheeling boyfriend Jay. Through a quirky twist of fate, Roberta and Susan unexpectedly swap lives and are plunged into a madcap world of jewel heists, magic shows and rock 'n' roll. The collision of their identities takes them on a wild ride of transformation and discovery until they realise that just when you think you know when your life is headed, something magical happens and turns it all around...
Alongside BLONDIE'S much loved hits, including: CALL ME, HEART OF GLASS, RAPTURE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, SUNDAY GIRL, ATOMIC, THE TIDE IS HIGH, DREAMING and HANGING ON THE TELEPHONE, the production will also introduce MOMENT OF TRUTH, a new song especially written by Deborah Harry.
