My son is a fag (but what can you do?) is the joyous autobiographical story of social media sensation Rob Madge as they set out to recreate this parade – and this time no one, no, no one is going to rain on it. Rob started sharing stock clips on social media during lockdown and the idea of turning it into a live show was born with songs written especially for the production by Adrian Mole composer Pippa Cleary.
Rob Madge said: “I’m so thrilled that the music of My son is a fag (but what can you do?) will be released as this album. As an avid collector of all West End musical cast recordings, the idea that our songs will now be released not only digitally but also physically makes me very proud. as well as the music of my son is a fag, I’m thrilled to say that this album will feature exclusive bonus content, including extended monologues from the show and audio from a personal favorite of the home videos that appear. These songs hold a very special place in Pippa and I’s hearts and we’ve always dreamed of being able to share them – we never imagined we could do it like this! I am so proud to share with you all the extraordinary work of Pippa Cleary, Simon Nathan as well as the exceptional talent of our musicians, engineers, mixers and singers. I hope this album sings for that kid who fell in love with the art of theater in the first place and reminds you of the magic that can happen “when the stage is your living room”. Everything is possible!”
