In little over an hour, Sally Madeleine MacMahon talks us through her longstanding battle with depression. The only child of absent parents, she begins the show with immense confidence and a desire to change the world. - A Super Happy Story About Feeling Super Sad the multi award-winning cabaret musical about depression will have an extended London run after a sold-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe run, a successful national tour and a critically acclaimed stint at Vaults Festival. Written by writer for Netflix's The Crown and Olivier award winner Jon Brittain Rotterdam, Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho with music by Matthew Floyd Jones Frisky and Mannish , the show is a joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy show.
And that matters. This is a show that feels thoroughly genuine. It hugs you close. And our journalism is invested in supporting theatre and the performing arts. The Stage is a family business, operated by the same family since we were founded in We do not receive government funding.
Jon Brittain and Matthew Floyd Jones ' musical could leave the most stoical theatre goer a quivering jelly on the floor. Its power is that it creates gusts of laughter and affection for the central character Sally, endearingly portrayed by Madeline MacMahon, before laying her suicide attempt out in graphic detail. Sally is a typically effervescent twenty-something, taking on demeaning jobs like charity mugging in animal costumes and looking for direction. Her best friend, the dorky Meatloaf fan Toby Ed Yelland, also brilliant is a caring sidekick, until it's clear that her bipolar condition is spiralling out of control and he is pushed away. Floyd Jones' songs are, as with his work with Frisky and Mannish , spiky pop gems, avoiding the happy-clappy, exposition-heavy trappings of typical stage school cast musicals.
