Singing. Satire. Subtext. All at Mach 3! If you see only one musical comedy about mounting a mega-musical based on the movie Top Gun, make it Top Gun! The Musical. Writer Billy Palmer is about to crash and burn. His musical adaptation of Top Gun is going off the rails and he really needs a hit… especially after the debacle of Apocalypse Wow! Instead, he’s saddled with a quarreling cast, a shady military producer, and a bit of bad luck. Now if only everyone would stop singing!
For anyone who’s ever cringed through Cats, felt the need for speed, or wondered “who thought that would be a good idea?”, comes this new satirical musical. You’ll laugh. You’ll hum. You’ll believe a jet can fly!
