It’s better than an ABBA song and it’s heading straight for the Sydney Lyric! Muriel’s Wedding opens on July 4 with a fabulous production and luminous cast that includes veterans from the first show as well as newcomers. This much acclaimed new Australian musical thrilled audiences so much during its debut season that is was virtually obligated to return quickly to the stage for another run. Featuring top hits from Australia’s favourite Swedes, ABBA, along with fabulous new songs by our Eurovision queen, Kate Miller-Heidke, this quirky, hilarious, heart-warming musical is already on its way to becoming a classic. It’s certainly the best thing to come out of Porpoise Spit for a long time!
PJ Hogan, who wrote the original script for the 1994 movie has managed to update the stage version without losing any of the vintage humour.
The musical has won 5 Helpmann Awards, 7 Sydney Theatre Awards, an Awgie Award, the 2018 David Williamson Prize, and received an ARIA Award Nomination.
So dust off those purple tuxedos and turquoise taffeta frocks, and put on your best fake bling – you’ll want to look your best for Muriel’s Wedding!
