As the show prepares to make its West End debut, a cast recording of the show is set to be released later this month.

With  Rob Madge preparing to transfer their autobiographical show, My Son’s a Queer (But What Can You Do?), to the West End’s Garrick Theatre, theatre music label West Way have announced the release of the cast recording on the 21st October. As well as original material from the show, the recording will also feature bonus tracks and material for people to enjoy.

When Rob was 12, they attempted to stage a full-blown Disney parade in their house for their Grandma. As Rob donned a wig and played Mary Poppins, Ariel, Mickey Mouse and Belle, their Dad doubled as Stage Manager, Sound Technician and Goofy. Unfortunately, Dad missed all his cues and pushed all the floats in the wrong direction. Mum mistook Aladdin for Ursula. The costumes went awry. Ariel’s bubble gun didn’t even work properly. Grandma had a nice time though. 

Talking about the news, Rob Madge said: “I am so thrilled that the music of My Son’s A Queer (But What Can You Do?) is going to be released in the form of this album. As an avid collector of every West End musical cast recording growing up, the idea that our songs will now be released not only digitally but also physically makes me so very proud. As well as the music of My Son’s A Queer, I am delighted to say this album will feature exclusive bonus content,including extended monologues from the show and audio from a personal favourite of the home videos that appear. These songs hold a very special place in the hearts of Pippa and I and we have always dreamed of being able to share them – we never imagined we’d get to do it like this! I’m so proud to share with you all the extraordinary work of Pippa Cleary, Simon Nathan as well as the exceptional talent of our musicians, engineers, mixers and singers. I hope this album sings to that child within that fell in love with the art of theatre in the first place and reminds you of the magic that can happen ‘when the stage is your living room’. Anything is possible!”

The Westway label was formed in 2020 and has so far released music by Ramin Karimloo, Samantha Barks, Lee Mead, Cassidy Janson, Joe Stilgoe and Rachel John.
