#PULSE19 – Phoenix

Performed on Sat 1 Jun


The ultimate one-man band: guitarist, pianist, drummer... and dad.

When wannabe rock god Ash Phoenix (talented, charming, unknown) unexpectedly becomes a father, there’s only room for one star in the family. And it isn’t him. Ash ends up with no hits – and no missis. It’s hard to make it big when you're constantly walking on Lego.

Every note you hear in this one-man musical is played live by an insanely gifted musician. It’s a virtuoso feat by star Andy Gallo, who single-handedly creates the soundtrack before your very ears.

This new musical comedy heartbreaker comes from gold disc-winning songwriter Jessica Sharman and Richard Marsh, Fringe First winner (Dirty Great Love Story), BBC Audio Drama Award Best Comedy winner (Love & Sweets).

Directed by Lucy Jane Atkinson; starring Andy Gallo.

Age 12+.
