Barry O'Reilly in Is He Musical?
Barry O'Reilly makes his professional debut in new musical Is He Musical? in the role of Laurence.
As 1933 draws to a close, Laurence and Wilfred find themselves absorbed in a whirlwind of fabulously indulgent evenings across London’s West End with their fellow queer friends. But although their hidden world seems surprisingly free and easy, how long can it last?
IS HE MUSICAL? is an intimate, joyous musical comedy inspired by the true stories of the queer friends who loved, lived and partied across 1930s London.
The musical will premiere in a digital production performed live at the University of Wolverhampton before transferring to Curve, Leicester for two performances as part of DMU Pride. In addition to the shows, an immersive digital space will curate and collect historical & creative responses to both the musical and the rich history surrounding the show. A series of Q+As and workshops will also be hosted for free by the artists behind the musical.
