Jet Set Go (2009)

Compositeur: Pippa Cleary

Parolier: Jake Brunger • Pippa Cleary

Librettiste: Jake Brunger

Delightful, inventive and witty new musical about 24 hours in the ordinary working life of a transatlantic airline cabin crew; sex, romance, optimism and jaded cynicism are thrown together into a bitchy, campy but essentially tender-hearted cocktail.

Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités

Résumé

This covers 24 hours in the life of the cabin-crew on Go- Fly Airways from Heathrow to New York . Jim is the pilot, with newly qualified Paul as co-pilot. The purser, Nicola, with her fixed smile, is torn between her boyfriend back home and her career. The other girls are nervous newcomer Melanie, the fiery, man-eating Julia, who can’t wait to eat Jim, the pilot, once they’re airborne, and Haley from the Welsh valleys, desperate not to be left on the shelf. The two male flight attendants (gay – obviously!), are beefcake hunk Richard and mincing queen Ryan. Ryan has the hots for Richard, but the latter is more interested in the dishy Italian guy sitting in 26C.

Quelques commentaires

First presented on the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2008, where the show developed a cult following with its kitsch pastiche and camp pun-filled dialogue. From the very opening with the company in purple and orange uniforms tap-dancing their way through the Safety Procedures, it was clear the reaction would be split – those who would scream along with the camp, and those who would make for the nearest emergency exit. The critics were neatly divided.
