Madrababes

Madrababes

Madrababes is a bawdy new musical comedy based on that most ancient of vocal music styles - The Madrigal. 

Originating in Italy in around 1520, Madrigals are beautiful, polyphonic vocal music, performed by a number of different unaccompanied singers. They can be serious or comic, sublime or selacious.

Madrababes juxtaposes these ancient & beautiful madrigals with a script which is very contemporary, very silly and very rude; putting an historical twist on the contemporary Jukebox Musical.

As reviewer Abby Sparrow put it after seeing a recent performance, "Great vocal arrangements and a wonderful cast make for a fun show which will lift the most miserable of spirits".

Madrababes is beautiful and hilarious, and not to be missed.
