Hit West End show My Son’s a Queer, (But what can you do?) written by and starring Rob Madge has extended its run at the Ambassadors Theatre in London.
Originally scheduled to close on 18 March, the show will now extend its run at the Ambassadors Theatre to 1 April 2023.
Written and performed by musical theatre star Rob Madge, the award-winning solo show celebrates the joy and chaos of raising a queer child.
The show first premièred at the Turbine Theatre in London two years ago, before heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and then transferring to the West End’s Garrick Theatre in autumn 2022.
The show is also celebrating its 100th performance today, 17 February 2023, across all four of the venues.
Rob Madge said in a press statement: “I am overjoyed that this show continues to touch people’s hearts. Our hope is that we welcome many more people through the doors at the Ambassadors Theatre and we see them go home with big smiles on their faces, with the world seeming a little bit brighter.”
The show is directed by Luke Sheppard, with Songs by Pippa Cleary, Set and costume design by Ryan Dawson Laight, Video design by George Reeve, Lighting design by Jai Morjaria, Sound design by Tingying Dong, and Orchestrations by Simon Nathan.
