Frank Christie, Frank Clarke
Music by Alan McFadden
Lyrics by Stephen Fleming
An hilarious and surprising musical where an Australian highwayman reinvents himself as a multinational media mogul.
Based on the outrageously true story of Frank Gardiner, the show weaves music hall numbers, book scenes and songs into a tune-filled, high energy satire of the contemporary Australian psyche. This show turns gold-field musical cliches on their heads in a riot of comedy with new fashioned bite. Think THE VENETIAN TWINS meets CHICAGO.
