Mickey & Judy - Tarragon Theatre Extra Space

Michael Hughes, the writer and star of this one-man show, is a revelation.
This show is full of heart as Michael takes situations like being taken for psychiatric testing for cross-dressing at age six and presents them with humour and without self-pity.  He describes how he has gotten through difficult situations in his life by watching musicals and escaping to a different land and the show itself is intercut with musical numbers by this gifted performer.
The honesty and humour of the piece draws you in and won't let go.
A standing ovation well deserved, you'll laugh and cry.
The feel good show of the Fringe.
