Little Johnny’s Big Gay Musical

Written by Johnny McKnight.  Directed by Julie Brown.  Produced by Random Accomplice.  2009 Tour. 

30, Single and Singing!

Written and performed by Johnny McKnight, the hysterical sell-out musical is on tour throughout Scotland.  Little Johnny’s Big Gay Musical is a hilarious one-man musical comedy extravaganza. Join Little Johnny as he sashays, taps and vogues along his journey through life’s ups and downs. 

A glittering celebration of failure in all its heart-wrenching, gold sequinned glory – written and performed by Johnny McKnight, directed & choreographed by Julie Brown, this is Random Accomplice back with their unique brand of comic panache. 

With a score composed by Karen MacIver, Little Johnny is joined on stage with a fabulous four piece band. Incorporating one-man confessional theatre and stand-up alongside traditional song & dance concepts from the Golden Age of the Hollywood musical, Little Johnny take to the stage and opens up in an all-singing, all-dancing tale through three turbulent decades. 

A witty and confessional take on his own personal strive for perfection – Little Johnny is 30, single and singing!

 

REVIEWS

***** Enthralling…You’ll laugh more times in this show than in the majority of the Fringe’s comedy.  THREE WEEKS

***** An absolute delight… will have you smiling broadly for days.  SCOTSGAY

**** Showstopping…  sharp with a quip and wry with self-deprecation… McKnight’s execution of his songs and script is sublime, affectionately paying tribute to the great musicals and his own indomitable ego as much as sending them up.  THE SCOTSMAN

**** If Johnny McKnight didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him just for a laugh – make that countless laughs, all spiked with a telling sensibility of what it means to be single, gay and approaching 30… Vulgar?  Exuberantly so, and like this entire tour de force, crafted with a consummate awareness of how far to go, how to time and deliver material, be it verging on the sentimental or the potentially shocking.  THE HERALD
