‘Frank’s Closet is a modern monument to old-fashioned camp’ WhatsOnStage

Frank teeters on the precipice of marriage to his beloved Alan, who has given him an ultimatum – he must give up the toys and joys of singledom, and donate his fabulous collection of the dresses of iconic divas to the V&A. Amidst continual calls from Alan, his mother, and once (briefly) his father, Frank retreats into a fantasy world where he is The Chairman of The Music Hall.

Through the magical portal of his closet door, the divas visit him in turn, aided and abetted by a quartet of Gaiety Girls. Each diva delivers a musical number containing a gem of good, or at least well intentioned, advice. But will frocks or fiancé ultimately triumph…?

Frank’s Closet is a high-camp, witty and poignant show, framed by the artifice of the musical hall  and propelled by the increasingly surreal musical turns of the divas.

Frank’s Closet explores the conflict between fantasy and responsibility, liberty and conformity, with wit and heart, in a way that will chime with anyone who’s ever pondered the joys and terrors of a lifetime of commitment….


"Stuart Wood’s camp-over-camp musical returns to London in a new limited-running production playing at the Union Theatre until the end of the month. Guillermo Nazara shares his views on the show, to let us know if this rainbow-coloured extravaganza brings more than fuss and feathers".

'15 years later, I enjoy a return to the diva-tastic Frank’s Closet'
There Ought To Be Clowns

Now that’s what I call entertainment! Drop what you’re doing and hightail it to the capital’s current capital of camp to catch this gloriously retro performance before it disappears for another decade or so. It really is that good.
