Peter Michael Marino’s critically acclaimed true story of the making and unmaking of his West End Blondie musical flop “Desperately Seeking Susan” gets a new twist as his roller coaster tale is joined by original cast members and surprise guests.

In 2007, American Peter Michael Marino wrote the musical version of the Madonna movie "Desperately Seeking Susan" featuring the hit songs of Blondie. The mega-musical opened on London's West End at the Novello Theatre … and closed a month later. WHOOPS! "Desperately Seeking the Exit" is Pete's critically acclaimed true story of the making and unmaking of his notorious flop that played everywhere from the USA, to the UK, to Australia.

At this special 5th anniversary one-night-only presentation, the show gets a new twist as Marino's roller coaster tale is joined by original "Desperately Seeking Susan” cast member Steven Serlin (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), workshop cast member Neil McDermott (Eastenders, Shrek the Musical, Wind in the Willows), and special guests David Calvitto (12 Angry Men, Americana Absurdum, These Shining Lives), Tim McArthur (Into The Woods, Mountains, Resonance Radio Curtain Up Show), and Amy Cooke-Hodgson (Austentatious, Girlfriends).
