You want shows imported from London? New York? The USSR? Of course you don't! Join Karin and James as they accidentally create a full-scale Broadway-style musical in their own living room, right here in Melbourne!

Broady is a celebration of everything that makes this city tick – from Ticket Inspectors to Livinia Nixon – as seen through the eyes of four aspiring Melbourne artists.

Karin and James live in a house. As the bills start piling up they begin to wonder if a career in the arts is all it's cracked up to be. With the help of their friends Erin and Luke they unravel the mysteries of Musical Theatre in Melbourne and find happiness somewhere between Kander and Ebb and the kitchen sink.

Written by Green Room Award nominee Karin Muiznieks (World War Wonderful, Filthy Secrets), James Simpson (Lasalle College of the Arts) and Antenna Award nominee Dan Walmsley (Planet Nerd, Laughmageddon II: The Copenhagening.)

Directed by Green Room Award nominee Scott Gooding (Eric, Blood, First Against The Wall.)

Premiering to sell out shows in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Theatre Works is thrilled to be enable further development on this production for Musical Works.

All the glamour of 42nd Street with the charm of a picnic by the Yarra.

“Give my Regards to Broady is a joyous piece of theatre – richly comedic, silly and a fun night out. Grab your metcard and book a seat before these stars in the making are whisked away to bigger things.” – Australian Comedy Review
