Tour Announcement: I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical


Following critically acclaimed seasons at Wilton’s Music Hall and several Edinburgh Festival Fringes, James Seabright has announced the debut UK and Ireland tour of Alexander S. Bermange’s hugely popular revue, I Wish My Life Were Like a Musical. This wonderfully humorous depiction of the unseen world of musical theatre has so far been lauded with an unprecedented fifty five-star reviews. With a cast of West End performers (to be announced), this definitive comedic musical revue reveals all there is to know about musical theatre and the people who love it on both sides of the curtain.


Alexander S. Bermange is a composer and lyricist of sixteen musicals (including The Route To Happiness, Thirteen Days and multi-award-winning Shadowless) that have been produced in London, around the UK and internationally; music and songs for theatre productions such as Spitting Image Live at Birmingham Rep and its subsequent West End transfer, Plague Over England in the West End and the much-toured Murder On Air; and many comic songs for BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service. Alexander topped iTunes’s comedy album chart with Wit & Whimsy, an album celebrating his comedic work.

Matthew Parker is an award-winning freelance theatre director and former Artistic Director of The Hope Theatre. Recent directing includes A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Cambridge Shakespeare Festival), Vinegar Tom (OVO Theatre), The Comedy of Errors and Henry V (Roman Theatre St Albans). Whilst at The Hope Theatre he directed ten productions and won the Best Artistic Director OFFIE Award. Matthew has received eight Best Director OFFIE Award nominations for his work and won Best Director of a Musical at the 2023 Awards for his direction of Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story (Jermyn Street Theatre).
