Hilarious, heart-warming and heart-breaking simultaneously in a way that shouldn’t be possible. Stunning.
Musical Theatre Review
After a 5 Star, sell-out run at The Cockpit Theatre last month, Mario is extending his stay on the stage at The Union Theatre this September! With book and lyrics by Jim Burrows & music by Winston Eade. Direction by Ellie Coote, Musical Direction by Laurence T-Stannard & Choreography by Laura Dawn.
When the red-suited moustachioed plumber goes missing, the Princess realises she has to break the cycle of her role as “damsel in distress”, turn the tables and go on an adventure to rescue her rescuer. Together with his cowardly brother, her officious butler and an embittered, drunken former sidekick, they have to learn what it means to be a hero to defeat the evil dinosaur King and his scheming witch minion.
This new musical parody features an electrifying original score, bringing the much loved characters of the Mario Universe to life! This show is a must see for Mario lovers from all generations as we go on a new quest where the clock is ticking down and the fate of the virtual world is at stake - will it be mission complete or game over?
