New Musical! Why Am I So Single?

Read Time:2 Minute, 54 Second

From the multi-award-winning writers of SIX, Toby Marlow & Lucy Moss, comes their all-new,
highly anticipated second musical, WHY AM I SO SINGLE? This Big Fancy Musical follows two
besties through the ups, and mostly downs, of their dating lives in the era of Tinder (and Bumble
and Grindr and Hinge and Feeld). This musical extravaganza about love, dating, friendship – and
bees – explores the weird and wonderful hilariousness of being single.


A celebration of friendship and love, WHY AM I SO SINGLE? asks how two super interesting,
super cool, super fun pals could possibly still be single?!? This extraordinary and totally
unexplainable situation faced by our fabulous duo is made even more complicated by the fact
that, on a completely unrelated note, they also need to find a really great topic for their next
musical.


Lead casting has been announced.


Jo Foster (& Juliet; Just For One Day, West End;) will return from the show’s early workshop to
co-star in this epic musical for the ages. They will be seen alongside the newly cast Leesa Tulley
(SIX, UK Tour; Kin, Theatro Technis) as their bff. Together they will navigate the difficult modern
dating world and how to flirt with your Deliveroo driver, all with their best friend firmly by their
side. They are joined on stage by Noah Thomas (Everything Now, Netflix; Everybody’s Talking
About Jamie, West End). The ensemble casting is to be announced.


Featuring epic pop and musical-inspired songs by the dynamic writing team of Marlow & Moss
(described by British Vogue as the ‘future of musical theatre’), and high-energy choreography by
Ellen Kane (Matilda the Musical, Working Title Films; Dear England, National Theatre/West
End), WHY AM I SO SINGLE? is set to dazzle the dating world this autumn.


Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss comment, This is ultimately a musical about two friends, their
desire for love, and how they deal with loneliness. We hope people come away feeling super
uplifted. And we hope they text someone the second they leave the theatre saying ‘omigosh just
fyi i love you soooo much!!!!’
