‘Porn’ Reborn

Malta Independent Sunday, 12 July 2009, 00:00 Last update: about 5 years ago

The outrageous, unique musical that took Malta by storm during its first run a few months ago is ready to roll again with repeat performances to be held this month, just before the “Porn” team take the musical up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The story tells of young Stefan Bugeja, whose happy existence on Malta is shattered when he finds out that his fiancé Jade is not as angelic and pure as he thought. Stefan goes off to America in search of a new life. What he finds is an exciting group of friends in an industry that takes some getting used to, as well as a well-endowed star who goes by the name of Sanddy (with a Double D). They all embark on a desperate musical adventure that has all the wide-eyed wonder of a Disney movie – but is not for kids. Definitely not for kids.

This fabulous original show was developed by Malcolm Galea, Boris Cezek, and Kris Spiteri, collectively known as Indiskarf, who are all extremely excited to be taking up the very first local musical to the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

The version presented to the public this time will be more condensed; in fact, the exact version that will be presented at the festival. One of the differences is that the girls will be played by two other actresses – Sandy by Sarah Naudi and Jade by Eliza Borg. The rest of the cast remains the same - Max Dingli as Stefan, Louis Cassar as Martin Scoresleazy, David Ellul as the Dr Johnny Long, Toni Attard as the Miscellaneous Man and Malcolm Galea himself as the narrator. Choreography is by Emma Loftus. The new version is produced by Winston Azzopardi.

Porn the Musical will take place at Argotti Gardens between 27 July and 2 August. Visit the official website: www.thepornmusical.com for booking details, cast information and special sneak previews.

Tickets may be purchased from www.maltaticket.com, as well as from all Exotique, Agenda Bookshop, Bookends, Newskiosk and Vodafone outlets.
