Following award-winning, sell-out London and Edinburgh seasons, and prior to appearing Off-Broadway, A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad), the acclaimed cabaret musical that explores how it’s OK to not be OK, is now available globally via Stream Theatre, with scheduled performances until this Sunday 4 July 2021, and then available on-demand for a further week until Sunday 11 July 2021.
The Silent Uproar musical, which was filmed live at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall, is the first of four streaming premieres this month curated and presented by Olivier Award-winning producer James Seabright.
Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it.
A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) is written by double Olivier award-winner Jon Brittain (Baby Reindeer; Rotterdam; Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho) with music by Matthew Floyd Jones (Frisky and Mannish). It’s performed by Madeleine MacMahon, Sophie Clay and Ed Yelland.
