After the year we’ve all had with the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) is sure to strike a chord with many people and it provides a voice for those experiencing mental health issues.
Silent Uproar’s cabaret style show A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) is a highly sensitive and nuanced performance which nails the debilitating effects of what is still a misunderstood condition.
Recorded in June 2021 before a socially-distanced audience at Wilton’s Music Hall, A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) brings Silent Uproar’s show back to the stage following previous successful runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Vaults Festival.
When I chaired my first post-show Q&A at Miss Nightingale a year ago, I thought its home then was ideal: The Vaults, in its labyrinth beneath Waterloo Station, so like an air raid shelter, seemed to perfectly fit the setting of London during the Blitz. But now that it’s moved to the London Hippodrome, it’s obvious, THIS is truly the ideal venue.
Miss Nightingale is a charmingly sweet musical which has a heart. I love the fact that it’s gone against the trend and does not have your predictable archetypal ending. It’s full of character with an eclectic musical taste which should suit most audiences.
Matthew Bugg – creator, director, producer of the spirited musical Miss Nightingale – has found the ideal glam-louche venue for his tale of cabaret and illicit love. I always knew it would work even better at tables with drinks on them.
