Product Description
Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank have already made history by creating Prodigal, the first Australian musical to receive an off-Broadway season. Now, after the smash Melbourne season, their latest musical, Virgins A Musical Threesome has been accepted for the 2006 New York Musical Theatre Festival, and has been performed at Abington Theater, NYC.

Virgins consists of three thematically-unrelated one-act musicals: The Virgin Wars, in which a socially conscious teen, Tracy, drags her team of cheerleaders to school halls around America, promoting the virtues of chastity. The Girl On The Screen deals with a female journalist asked to write an article about the women behind internet-porn sites. And Jumpin' The Q is a reality TV show in which asylum seekers compete in a pop contest for the ultimate prize - Australian citizenship!

The five talented actors who bring Virgins to life are Amanda Levy, Esther Hannaford, Rosemarie Harris, Verity Hunt-Ballard and Kellie Rode.

"This satirical burlesque trilogy oozes with talent in all departments and is an excellent example of the new spirit in musical theatre." - Owen Richardson, The Sunday Age

"Virgins is a musical with legs..not to mention hips, thighs and buttocks - a heavenly trinity of three self-contained one-acters..thigh-slappingly funny." - Chris Boyd, Herald-Sun

"Stylistically Virgins partakes of the best qualities of Sondheim's light-as-air, postmodern satires. Bryant's lyrics are as zany and inventive as they are switched-on and apposite..as for Frank's music, it might be coated in a creamy layer of ebullient pop, but inside lie diverse and exotic flavours...Frank and Bryant have created a show more than capable of holding its own on the world stage." - Cameron Woodward, The Melbourne Age
