Meet Cute

The Manoel Theatre is today hosting the last show of a new jukebox musical written and performed by the TOI TOI Collective.

Directed by Petra Sant and featuring singer Sean Borg and musical theatre soprano Rachel Fabri, Meet Cute is an unconventional romantic comedy that explores – with the help of songs from the world of musical theatre – the idea of a ‘meet cute’ scene, where two future lovers first meet under unusual, humorous or cute circumstances.
