Leo & Hyde – Part of Musical Rewrites

The Marriage of Kim K

A fight over the TV remote:

Kardashian vs Mozart

Pop Musical vs Opera

Make-up vs Break-up.

The award-winning Gogglebox-inspired musical returns to Manchester, remixed with more bops, arias, and genre-bending mash-ups than ever before.

★★★★★ ‘An original, creative and dazzling musical’ North West End

★★★★★ ‘Outstanding…it takes your breath away…a must see’ Fringe Guru

★★★★★ ‘Brilliant… zesty and irreverent… go see it twice!’ Spy in the Stalls

On the night before their anniversary weekend, Mike and Amanda have very different ideas about how to spend the night: Keeping up with the Kardashians and chill, or Marriage of Figaro and culture. But is this argument over what to watch on TV more than just a petty squabble? How different can you be from the love of your life? Can you learn to love what you thought you hate?

Combining pop, electronic, and classical music, this 3-in-1 rom-com switches between two iconic marriages: Internet breaker Kim Kardashian is looking forward to her fairytale marriage to her trophy husband, NBA star Kris Humphries. A fresh New York life may sound like fun, but does her heart lie in the (Kanye) West?
