I truly believe Fangirls has the potential to play on a Broadway stage one day, and hope it continues to grow and improve with each iteration. Fangirls is a joyful, hilarious show that demonstrates an incisive understanding of contemporary fandom culture in the internet age, and I can’t wait to see it staged again.
“I want young people to see the show because I always try to impart on people to treat their family and their mothers better. I think it’s an important show for anyone to see who has parents, because I think it provides a valuable perspective to re-evaluate your own relationship with your parents that you might later reflect on after they’re gone.”
Ugly Love is a witty and topical show and Matthews should be applauded for taking on the considerable challenge of bringing a new Australian musical to our stages. I felt lucky to be a part of the audience and hope to see the work develop and grow in future productions.
